This note is principally to say thank you to all of the people who have made the D programming language and its ecosystem. Being mechanical engineers, we are occasional but serious programmers. For a number of years, we struggled with C++ and a code base of growing complexity. In 2014, we made a serious commitment to reworking the entire code into D. In mid-2017, the new code was complete enough for general use and it is currently being used in a fourth-year course on computational fluid dynamics. The D programming language has enhanced our programming experience and, for that, we are grateful to the many people who have built the foundation upon which we build our flow simulation code.
Thanks for the kind words. Indeed D seems to be at a sweet spot for scientific computation.
