Victor Porton
19 May 2021

"High Master" diploma of D development. No prerequisites (except of Python knowledge).

D programming language or DLang for Python programmers: rapid software development of high performance software and a reliable software technology. “There is no best programming language”, they say. There is, for most applications it is D. The course starts from a comparison of D to Python. Then it explains D starting from simple features (types, variables, functions, expressions, statements) up to advanced ones (object oriented programming, templates, mixins, contract programming, overloading of operators, etc.)

Currently we have only text lectures and exams, but addition of video lectures is planned.
