tl;dr Derek Banas is a YouTuber that makes long-form programming tutorials. He has almost one million subscribers. He just posted a 90-minute tutorial that covers D beginning to end. This could be great promotional for this community to share with people learning D!

Back when I was learning D, I learned from every resource I could find: I read the canonical Programming in D e-book by Ali Çehreli, The D Programming Language by Andrei Alexandrescu, and even some of Adam D. Ruppe’s D Cookbook. Still, this wasn’t enough at the time, so I also read through most of this website’s docs and joined the IRC channel to bug people as much as they’d let me.

It was about that time that I checked Derek Banas’s YouTube channel to find a tutorial covering D. Derek Banas is well known for creating long-form programming videos (usually an hour or more) that cover the most essential aspects of major programming languages in a fast but accessible format. He didn’t have a video at the time, so I kindly left a comment and forgot about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzeE8py1LGI&lc=Ugh2w7hQ82S2UngCoAEC (see highlighted comment).

Well, I’m excited to share that Derek Banas has just posted a lengthy D tutorial (90 minutes) on his YouTube channel. I have no idea if I actually had any influence or not (probably not), but I’m excited nonetheless that this community has one more qualitative resource for beginners to learn D. D taught me a lot, including some of the more advanced concepts available to programming languages, and I’m really excited that now it’ll be easier for more people can learn these concepts, too.

This is much cooler than I thought and very accessible. Very cool.

I think this guy was the one who sparked the idea.

It's a good thing that D is becoming more public (I hope.)
However there were a few mistakes in the explanation of mixins.

You should point it out in the comment section, Derek is pretty quick receiving feedbacks.
