Why not DConf is carried out twice a year!? :)
E.g. in May and in November. It would be really great. Please
Hmm, there may be a little disconnect here. Organizing
conferences costs money, which currently comes from Walter and
my pocket. Whilst I understand how it's awfully exciting to
enjoy quality content from the comfort of one's device, we need
more attendees before more conferences to make the checkbooks
balance. Besides, there is no substitute for being there, as
I'm sure all of this year's DConf participants may attest.
I've been thinking that D needs more globally-available talks
like this throughout the year. One way to do it would be to
schedule monthly livestreams of a D developer in front of his
webcam, like the Jai programming language guy was doing. I could
help organize something like this, but the problem isn't getting
it up and running but having people actually give talks. I can't
even get people to answer my emails for email interviews about D
(with the exception of Mihails, who's been very prompt).
No doubt everybody is very busy and D is a hobby that's easily
pushed aside, but online talks could keep the conference momentum
going throughout the year.
