Donor T-Shirts

Hello, D backers!
Published on September 22, 2018 by Mike Parker

Thank You! Now for SAoC.

Thanks again to everyone who helped us meet our goal of raising money for the code-d and serve-d. If you haven't seen it yet, there's a post on the D Blog outlining the first two milestones that money will be funding. The D Language Foundation is looking forward to raising money for more projects in the future.

About

D is a general purpose systems and applications programming language. It is a high level language, but retains the ability to write high performance code and interface directly with operating system APIs and with hardware. D is a programming language with an emphasis on powerful metaprogramming facilities on top of a robust, efficient core. Idiomatic D programs are commonly as fast as hand-optimized C code, while being reportedly shorter and easier to write, read, and change. A gradual approach to memory safety allows safe programs to be largely automatically checked, whilst relying on small and fast manually-verified primitives.

D's rich feature set offers many opportunities to a variety of projects, without them being ostensibly related to advanced metaprogramming facilities. High-performance code can be terse and highly optimized without the tedium of repeated coding patterns or hand-written specializations. Highly dynamic code can combine static and dynamic language features in an expressive whole. The best, most innovative ways to use the D language are yet to be discovered.

Why Open Collective?

Open Collective allows us to set up a variety of donation packages, with or without rewards, for one-time and recurring donations, at levels within reach of individuals and those more suited for corporate budgets. You can leave notes with your donation to tell us what you think of our work or what’s important to you. We can submit expenses to show how the money is being used, and set up fund drives for specific targets. $5 a month isn't much (about one coffee in most countries), but if 100 people donate one coffee a month, you get the entire coffee machine with a warp engine.

For more information see our OpenCollective kickoff blog post. There are also alternative donation options and other ways to get involved with the D programming language community.
