 As a long time D fanboy I was known to say "That is quite simple in D" a
lot at work!
Now I was finally able to convience my boss (our CTO) to take a serious
look at D as a replacement for the parts of our infrastructure that use
nodejs right now.
After my series of blog posts about this topic and a short presentation I
did in the office he finally announced quite publicly today that we are
fact going to use D:

So our next online game will be powered by some parts in D ;)
Exciting times!

Congrats! Looking forward to your dconf talk next year! ;)

Actually I am still crossing my fingers for my submission this year. Do
you know something I don't? ^^

No, I just imagined you'd need at least a year for your in-house code to
bake before you can present stories from it...? Or has this been going on
longer than you let on? :P

No no it is just that this whole thing got more drive in the last couple of months since I am developing my server backend in D and wrote about it (and of course talked about it at work). Actually I am starting today and submitted my first lines of D to our SCM!!!

Huzzah! Welcome to the evangelical club!
I hope it goes smoothly for you... it's only your reputation on the line! :P
