1. Why your company uses D?
a. D is the best
b. We like D
c. I like D and my company allowed me to use D
d. My head like D
e. Because marketing reasons
f. Because my company can be more efficient with D for some
tasks then with any other system language
My company doesn't use D.
2. Does your company uses C/C++, Java, Scala, Go, Rust?
My company uses what the customers ask for, we don't get to
choose that much.
iOS projects - Objective-C, Swift
Java projects - Java, Scala, Clojure
Windows projects - C#, VB.NET
Android projects - Java
Hybrid development across iOS and Android - Cordova, Ionic
Traversal to all projects, C++ as infrastructure language for
performance reasons or integration of C and C++ libraries.
3. If yes, what the reasons to do not use D instead?
Customers don't ask for it on their RPF to allow its use.
2. Have you use one of the following Mir projects in production:
e. https://github.com/libmir/dcv - D Computer Vision Library

Above all, a killer project that makes customers ask us about
employees with D skils. As an example, Docker and Kubernetes
success means our devops guys are slowly improving their Go
skills in the newly introduced internal training.
6. Why many topnotch system projects use C programming language
Due to existing tooling, libraries and that for many companies
using a managed language + C, is good enough and allows for
Also many developers born after memory safe system languages lost
the market to UNIX + C, think that C was the first one to exist
for system programming.
All my current D project are finished. Probably I will use
other languages for production this year, Java/Go/whatever. Mir
libraries are amazing and good quality. If you use them this
would be a good motivation for us to improve the docs and
provide regular updates. Plus, it can be enchanted during the
