Andrei Alexandrescu (born ) is a Romanian-American C++ and D language programmer Alexandrescu released a book titled The D Programming Language in May From to , Alexandrescu, Herb Sutter, and Scott. Prelude: Orem, UT, May 29 Just finished delivering my keynote. Exiting the character, I’m half dead. People say it needs to look easy. Andrei Alexandrescu: Concurrency in the D Programming if you are not that interested in the features and evolution of the D language.

I’ve seen there is a high-performance implementation of numerical algorithms which is better than Eigen and on par with the propietary Intel Math Kernel Libraries – if that can be confirmed, this is very, very good! Yannick Koechlin rated it it was amazing Feb 09, But dearth of libraries, directly attributed to the mind share and man power of the community. D is a very compelling language and Mr.

Go was published in and rust progfamming Nice chapter, it shows well D’s main strong point: As for the rest, it depends. There are companies which use it for critical stuff. Most modern browsers have a pop-up blocker which alnguage block pop-ups by default.

The D Programming Language

The people who were sacked have been reinstated, and those responsible for the sacking have been sacked. Only problem is alexandfescu Kindle edition is awful They are busy debating the language features rather than really working on the language.

In D it is possible to bring sanity even to APIs that are stringly e. Since you’ve expressed in trust in numerical computing I’ll toot my own horn and suggest you take a look at http: Today, Alexandrescu is a research scientist at Facebook, where he and a team of coders are using D to refashion small parts of the company’s massive operation.


Picked up Go and getting into Rust for alexandrewcu exact same reason. I didn’t want to give up the large R ecosystem, which includes a lot of code I’ve written, so I call D functions from R and R functions from D.


I think this solution is frequently even good for real-time systems because prigramming a system will often have a start-ip phase where it is allowed or desirable to dynamically allocate objects.

Vasily Kirichenko rated it it was amazing Nov 04, Would alexqndrescu incentivize more users to your language if your web playground works correctly. Retrieved 25 March Again depends how you allocate, but yes running out of memory is generally assumed to be irrecoverable. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

The D Programming Language by Andrei Alexandrescu

Books by Andrei Alexandrescu. It’s worth to make the transition over. Jan 08, Rembo rated it it was amazing. Alexandrescu received a B.

This is even truer for D – compile-time introspection and code generation allow for huge gains in productivity without compromising on performance, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, you may very well blow up your apartment block, not just your leg If there is no code in your link, it probably doesn’t belong here.

The critique is basically that the two main developers refuse to include any breaking changes which other people see as necessary to bring the language forward and make it more consistent. You’re right, and I’m pretty sure that’s a bug. Log in or sign up in seconds.

Well, I am disciplined but it dawned to me why my boss at that time became so nervous about using complex concurrent code – it made it more difficult to fire people after that shop ran out of money.

I was first like WTF?

This was necessary because all the different records had a different type. To ask other readers questions about The D Programming Languageplease sign up.


Feb 11, David Eagen rated it really liked it Shelves: This applies to all forms of dynamic memory allocation, including malloc, that may take unbounded time to allocate. I have done soft real-time audio processing in Python, using Numpy for signal processing. Here a summary on const, immutable and shared types in D: Since components are closer together, connections are also shorter, which means faster local interconnectivity.

But back to topic – I think a lack of support for immutable data structures is a major deficiency in any modern language which targets concurrent programming. Lists with This Book.

Try the “Print” view: Archived from the original on 7 May What Clojure however does not support, is bare-metal systems programming programmong everything is on top of the JVM, and in some cases this is Clojures most prominent limitation.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Reflecting the author’s signature style, the writing is casual and conversational, but never at the expense of focus and pre-cision.

That sounds really good, and I would be totally interested in seeing more examples for that. Doing that resulted in thousands of lines of very alexanxrescu code. Also, I learned Go and worked for one year intensively with it, for implementing performance-critical, highly concurrent cloud services.

This is more than rust, go and swift combined. Archived from the original PDF on 19 August That said, I am very impressed by the persistent and patient approach that you and the other developers of D seem to follow. D is very young and has a relatively small user base alexancrescu to established languages.
