Scott Meyers will deliver a keynote talk at DConf 2014
I'm happy to announce that Scott Meyers will deliver a keynote talk at 
the upcoming DConf 2014. Details of the talk are forthcoming.

Scott Meyers (http://aristeia.com) is one of the best experts worldwide 
in all aspects of software development using C++. He authored the 
best-selling Effective C++ series ("Effective C++", "More Effective 
C++", and "Effective STL") and founded the "Effective Software 
Development Series" at Addison Wesley, where he acts as a Consulting 
Editor. Scott holds a M.Sc. from Stanford University and a Ph.D. from 
Brown University.

That's great. Some of my favorite C++ books were written by him.

Does this mean D has to get the r-value references situation in 
order before May? :P

I guess he heard someone mention at the last DConf that having an 
Effective D book is in order. :p

Intriguing and exciting! I know he has always referred to himself 
as a "one language pony" in the past; I'm curious to see how that 
plays out.

Scott Meyers also wrote the foreword for Andrei's book "The D Programming Language".

Question: I want to participate, but I am from another country,
then I need to get my passport first, but in case it is denied
(It happens sometimes) can I have a refund?
