About The Book

The main aim of this book is to teach D to readers who are new to computer programming. Although having experience in other programming languages is certainly helpful this book starts from the basics.D is a multi-paradigm system programming language that combines a wide range of powerful programming concepts from the lowest to the highest levels. It has C-like syntax and static typing. It pragmatically combines efficiency control and modeling power with safety and programmer productivity in mind.Each chapter is based on the contents of the previous ones introducing as few new concepts as possible. It is recommended that the book is read in linear fashion without skipping chapters if possible.Although this book was written with beginners in mind it covers almost all features of D. More experienced programmers can use the book as a D language reference by starting from the index section.Blurbs from the back cover: D is pristine clean immensely powerful and arguably the actual state-of-the-art programming language. Alis book is a gem. Clear concise and complete. - Olivier HenleyI have been using Alis online D book to teach D at the university level. It is up-to-date complete and most importantly extremely readable. Having a print version is even better! This is now the go-to book for learning D programming. - Chuck Allison Professor and Chair Computer Science Department Utah Valley UniversityAlis explanations are succinct and on target. I like that he provides rationale for why D was designed in a particular way and how I can use it most effectively. This is the best computer language book Ive read. - Robbin Carlson Luthier and Enterprise ArchitectI taught a CS2 Data Structures class in D with more success and student appreciation than when using either C++ or Java as its an ideal language to express the relevant concepts at all scales from detailed to big picture without needless complexity. Ali Çehrelis tutorial played a central role supporting students especially during the first half of the course -- without it the course simply would not have worked so many thanks Ali -- and an important part of that is its linearity -- it can be read with only backward dependencies. This meant that with hard work even students of little experience and only moderate current abilities could get up to speed and we saw just that. It is hard to overstate this factor. I unreservedly recommend this book to all. - Dr. Carl Sturtivant University of Minnesota Department of Computer Science & EngineeringThis book is one of the best guides through the language that Ive seen. - Andrew Wray D EnthusiastI encourage anyone considering D to read this book. Not exactly D for Dummies but its easy to follow even if you dont have much experience with compiled languages. - bachmeier Reddit userHaving worked through the book I have to say this is one of the easiest to follow and distraction free read there is and the fact that it made learning a new language a total breeze really impressed me. - Imran Khan Student
