Someone revived the Expressive C++17 Coding Challenge thread

my blog and finally write an article showing why I like D so
It's mostly targeted at beginners as I explain many basic D
features, but maybe it's helpful for beginners looking into D.
Nice work! I was recently asked by my employer "why D?". I
think I need to show them this.
Aren’t you concered that Rust is faster in this benchmark?
Not at all. The challenge was to write expressive code and if
performance really matters I can always opt to optimize the hot
path of the program and don’t need to pay a > 4x code
duplication cost upfront.
You've gotta address this, IMO. What's the
performance/expressiveness tradeoff like in D?
