We really do need to stop hiding our light under a bushel.
Thinking in marketing terms doesn't always come easy to
technically minded people, and I understand why, but ultimately
the community benefits a great deal from people becoming aware
of the very real benefits D has to offer (alas people won't
just get it, even if you think they should), and there are
personal career benefits too from helping communicate how you
have applied D to do useful work. It's hard to find great
programmers and showing what you can do will pay off over time.
D has no well defined area to be used in. Everyone knows D, when
written in a very specific C-mimicking way, is performant. But
nobody is using C# or Scala or Python for performance.
