Honestly I'd recommend TDPL. It's got a lot of good
real-world examples, including some OOP ones, but more
importantly examples that demonstrate concurrent programming,
generic programming, procedural, and I think a few functional
examples as well. Basically, it covers a very broad area in
one book while also teaching you D.
Boring stuff IMO.
Interesting that you found it boring--I found it to be the
opposite. It is one of the few programming books that I can
read for enjoyment.
The D Programming Language (TDPL) is a big book so it will be
boring. I used it whilst learning about the complete features of
D (mostly just reading like story book though). So we all read
just like you said:
It is one of the few programming books that I can read for
But its not one you would want to use for courses (short time).
Its different however, when you're using them to solve real-world
problems that are actually real-world i.e. you justify why such
feature needs to be used. Then its not boring. Quite often than
not, such courses mostly bombard you with the theories.
