Scott Meyers, Andrei Alexandrescu and Herb Sutter: C++ and Beyond (D)

I realize that many of you here aren't big fans of big languages like C++, but perhaps D is more palatable to you? Andrei Alexandrescu answers the question "Why D (not the name, but why make D, what problems does it solve that C++ can't, etc)?".

This is generally a really good discussion among three titans of the native(C++ and D) programming world -> Herb Sutter, Scott Meyers and Andrei Alexandrescu. They also dig into language design principles/processes and discuss some of the trade offs (theory versus pragmatics) and unforced errors that human language designers all make. Tune in if you have the time. It's worth it, in my opinion.
