Join us for a joint program by the Computer Science Department of George
Mason University and the Washington DC Chapter of the ACM on April 26th
at 7:00 pm, for "The D Programming Language with Walter Bright". Walter
Bright will lead a discussion on the D Programming Language and its
programming community. The D programming language is an advanced systems
programming language. It is designed to combine the power and high
performance of C and C++ with the programmer productivity of today's
modern languages such as Ruby and Python. While its syntax style
resembles C/C++, D is a multiparadigm language and supports many styles
of programming including imperative, object-oriented, and metaprogramming.
Walter Bright graduated from Caltech in 1979 with a degree in mechanical
engineering. He worked for Boeing for 3 years on the development of the
757 stabilizer trim system. He then switched to writing software, in
particular compilers, and has been writing them ever since.
