Thanks for the chance to be there! Even if I am dissapointed
with many decisions being made, the main thing is that D is
getting new users and new success stories. And DConf tells
those stories :)
Out of curiosity, what decisions are you talking about ?
I think these are most unpleasant ones for me:
- Same hypocrite attitude to language/stdlib breaking changes
that neither allows to fix it nor gives stability guarantees.
- Going for kitchen sink Phobos (and distributing vibe.d as
part of Phobos)
- Moving fibers between threads (though there is some hope that
Liran managed to convince Walter it is a bad idea)
On the other hand, AST macros have been officially rejected and
that I like a lot :)
To miss on this kind of grapevine when not attending dconf is the
most annoying part...
I whish more of the attendees would write this stuff down
somewhere for us others ;) (looking at Adam and hoping for the
next issue of TWID)
