Funkwerk has been using D for nearly a decade to rewrite and maintain their passenger information system. Based on input from Mario Kröplin, I've just published the first of four posts about their project and their experience with D. This one is a Project Highlight that introduces the project, how they came to choose D for the rewrite, and how it worked out for them. We can expect to see three more posts, coming a rate of one a month from August to October, about other aspects of their D usage and experience.

Thanks to Funkwerk for contributing, and Mario in particular for making it happen.

What are they using for HTTP now?

Currently, we're using our own utilities, based on https://github.com/dlang/undeaD/blob/master/src/undead/socketstream.d (with the mentioned garbage-collection issue).

Good post. It's nice to hear that some users find contracts useful. Things can only get better if DIP 1009 is accepted. :)
