 this conference happen.
 The conference was very well organized, with quality speakers and great
 atmosphere.

 I'm very glad I was able to make it and get to meet parts of the great D

 Berlin is very convenient for us (3:30 hr direct flight :) ) so I guess
 next year you'll get to see more of Weka.IO :)

 See you, and thanks again!

Hi.

Just out of curiosity, what are the evils of AST macros (or 
could you point me to something you like on the topic)?


There was extended discussion in old threads but short summary of 
my opinion is:


- allows implicit changes to language semantics (== learning new 
framework is effectively learning new language)

- overlaps in functionality with mixins for majority of use cases
- less intuitive to newcomers (though cleaner/safer to 
experienced programmers, I admit that)

- requires standard (and stable!) AST format

Yes, considering current official stance on breaking changes that 
is huge negative point. We are rather far from being able to tell 
what good stable AST format could be be in the long run.


Maintaining two different formats is a way to address that but I 
feel that effort required goes beyond the realm of realistic at 
that point.

 I am interesting in this one.  What was the decision, that Fibers should
 or should not be allowed to migrate between threads?  Is the discussion

 Walter said that fibers must be movable between threads, it was part
 of the AMA I think (day 1 final talk).

Just listened to it.  I would be interested to know applications
where migrating Fibers across threads is a good thing.  I can imagine
server load balancing over cores.  What else?

The issue I've been tripped up by with migrating Fibers is that compiler
backends like LLVM and GCC do some nice optimizations with thread-locals
on some targets that lead to incorrect code when a Fiber yields and
comes back on a different thread.  To get it right, the compiler would
have to assume that any function call could return on a different
thread.

The solutions I can think of today are to: not optimize (not a good
solution), or have a special compiler switch to not optimize TLS (not
available in backend), or ensure Fibers don't access TLS vars (not sure
how that could be done except by being careful), or don't migrate.
Inlining makes being careful difficult because a function call before
and after a yield may access the same TLS var, and compiler then decides
to cache the TLS address in a register.

I have been prototyping a Fiber check that throws an exception on
targets with this issue, and the developer can override it by setting a
Fiber property, after promising to be careful.

Hmm, there may be a little disconnect here. Organizing 
conferences costs money, which currently comes from Walter and 
my pocket. Whilst I understand how it's awfully exciting to 
enjoy quality content from the comfort of one's device, we need 
more attendees before more conferences to make the checkbooks 
balance. Besides, there is no substitute for being there, as 
I'm sure all of this year's DConf participants may attest.


Of course, having DConf twice a year need to not start this year, 
but definitely in the near future. Perhaps starting with 2016 or 
2017.
Or you can alternate DConf. For example, in 2016 to spend DConf 
once, and in 2017 — two times! In 2018 once, and in 2019 — 
twice...


I believe that we need to start global popularization D, to take 
away the throne from the reign of C++ :) Possibly two DConf this 
greatly help.


As for sponsorship DConfs, I think you need to try to enlist the 
support of some great companies, such as Google. Of course, 
Digital Mars and The Faсebook done much for the development and 
promotion of D, but D needs the support of a strong company to 
accelerate the capture of the industrial market. Ie need to 
attract a strong company on the side D. I have no idea how this 
is possible :) But I think it's a good idea!


Sorry if I wrote something wrong. This is just my thoughts.

Is there an overview about all the talks that were given? 
Will there
be a link to the live-recordings, so one can jump to specific 
talks

directly?

http://dconf.org/2015/schedule/index.html


are there any slides online? would be great!


All slides are online at the respective talk pages at 
http://dlang.org. -- Andrei


Yeah there's still a permission problem with Lirans slides I 
think.


Cheers,

I fixed it for the third time. Somehow the permission keeps on going 
back to nonreadable by all. Anyone knows what the problem might be? --

Hmm, there may be a little disconnect here. Organizing conferences
costs money, which currently comes from Walter and my pocket. Whilst I
understand how it's awfully exciting to enjoy quality content from the
comfort of one's device, we need more attendees before more
conferences to make the checkbooks balance. Besides, there is no
substitute for being there, as I'm sure all of this year's DConf
participants may attest.


I've been thinking that D needs more globally-available talks like this
throughout the year.  One way to do it would be to schedule monthly
livestreams of a D developer in front of his webcam, like the Jai
programming language guy was doing.  I could help organize something
like this, but the problem isn't getting it up and running but having
people actually give talks.  I can't even get people to answer my emails
for email interviews about D (with the exception of Mihails, who's been
very prompt).

No doubt everybody is very busy and D is a hobby that's easily pushed
aside, but online talks could keep the conference momentum going
throughout the year.


In the past week or two, I've been considering doing a livestream for 
charity on livecoding.tv. Also thought about e.g. livestream conferences.


Very very different way to go about it. But I'm interested.

Click on the speaker's name and there's a slides link to the 
right of their picture on the next page like this:

http://dconf.org/2015/talks/murphy.html

Most of them are up but not all yet.


The proper videos are coming later to those pages too, but I 
don't know when.

The schedule has the proposed summary, and I'll be writing more

I just have about 600 lines of notes to weed through and get to 
the most interesting bits...

Assuming youtube doesn't make it too annoying on intermittent

Donations + prizes for viewers.
