Ali will present a shorter version of his DConf 2016 talk:
D's fibers (coroutines in other languages) are not a part of

This talk should be fairly accessible to new programmers even
without a CS background as it will explain the function call
stack as well as context registers, concepts necessary to
understand how fibers are useful at all.
Nice. I won't be there, but I really liked the talk about
multitasking you gave at DConf 2016. I never heard of coroutines
before it, so it pretty much blew my mind how easily you can
iterate on several trees (simultaneously) with them.
