In recent years, much work has been put into creating programming languages that embody a blend of many of the most admired characteristics of their predecessors. One such language is D, which provides developers with the speed of languages such as C and C++ combined with the power and flexibility of languages such as Ruby and Python. Learn to Tango with D introduces you to the powerful D language, with special attention given to the Tango software library. A concise yet thorough overview of the language's syntax and features is presented, followed by an introduction to Tango, the popular general-purpose library you'll find invaluable when building your D applications. Authored by prominent D developers Kris Bell, Lars Ivar Igesund, Sean Kelly, and Michael Parker, this book supplies not only the knowledge required to begin building your own D applications, but also the insight these authors have acquired due to their extensive experience working with and participating in the development of the D language. What you'll learn Gain a solid understanding of the D programming language and the companion Tango library. How to leverage the open source Tango library to build robust cross-platform applications. Why the combination of D and Tango can be the best option for your next application. Who is this book for? Programmers wishing to learn more about the D language and the Tango library.
