So far, getting content for the blog has, with a few exceptions, been a process of sending out emails prompted by activity on my radar. This is no problem when it comes to project highlights or other fairly broad topics, but it's highly inefficient for ginning up technical posts on the implementation of specific algorithms, or optimization details, or how a D feature prevented a nuclear meltdown.

I want to publish more posts like Andreas's 'Find Was Too Damn Slow, So We Fixed It` [1] (which, by the way, is the most-viewed post so far, just ahead of Joakim's interview with Walter [2]), or Steven's 'How to Write @trusted Code in D' [3], but I need help.


If you, or someone you know, have done something interesting with an algorithm or optimization in D, or have used a D idiom to do things in a way that pleasantly surprised you, please let me know. If I think it's something we can work with, I'll help you in putting together a guest post, or something like I do with the project highlights (where I build a post around whatever info you give me).

Also, I need news. If you see or hear any D news anywhere outside of the forums -- new projects, research papers, usage at a company, a game using D -- please drop me a line. I'll either get a post together for it or make sure Adam knows about it for 'This Week in D'.

I'm also open to ideas for other types of posts, like project highlights, but I'd really like more of the technical stuff. Please send any suggestions to aldac...@gmail.com.

Thanks!
