I have decided to learn the D programming language due to several reasons.
One is just for the sake of learning: mostly my experience comes from Python and Java and I want to get more into the lower level with a system programming language.
Second reason is D’s lower popularity. Unlike Rust, it doesn’t have big corporate backers. The language’s official website however lists many users.
In AAA gaming space only Remedy has used D for its game engine. This somewhat adds a certain nicheness and mystique to the language.
The third reason is that even though learning D will not likely get me a job, I may make my own D projects for hobbyist purposes.
Are there any D programmers? What you think of it? How it fares against C/C++ and Rust?
