Thanks for the link, just watched all four parts. I'm not sure Walter
is the right speaker for those kids, like having Yoda lecture a bunch of
young padewan. His half-float example was likely too low-level for that
audience, better to show something you'd do in ruby or python and
explain how it'd run _much_ faster in D, while not much more difficult
From what Walter said, they all knew c. So not really too low level
But half-float uses the 'alias this' trick, furthemore on a getter
function. Without a bit of D knowledge you can't get how it's subtle.
Yeah I agree, alias this was definitely too much for them.
But half float wasn't an issue IMO.
