Fantastic, I want to get more commercial uses like this highlighted on the blog- started another interview now with a financial/ML firm using D- so nobody can say D isn't being used.

BTW, the top HN comment asks for more detail: tell him to click on the DConf links in the post for Liran's slides and videos. There's a surfeit of tech detail there, this is just an overview to get people started on learning more.

Now one of the top-voted links on the front page of HN.

I'd just like to point out that Andrei put Liran and I together to do this interview in summer '17- though I had emailed Liran about doing one in '15 and never got a response- and he finally got some time to respond this summer.

Now I just need Andrei to finally do an interview, which he's been putting off for even longer. :)

Awesome work!

Question about one of the comments, because I don't understand the hardware aspect of things. this one: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18607297

Pasted here:

"Weka is a name of a Machine learning product from New Zealand.
The IBM system had 24xHGST N200 SSD, 830 000 random read, 200 000 random write. that is 24 * 200 000 IOPS=4.8Million random writes.

The Matrix system had 64x1.2TB Micron 9100 SSDs. 750 000 random read, 300 0000 random writes. 64 * 300 000=19.2 Million IOPS

Ok so you have benchmarked hardware with 4.8 Million write ops vs 19.2 Million write ops."

Anyone know if that last line is correct?

Weka is the company that produced Lord of the Rings here in NZ.
It is also a bird! (which makes WekaIO's name a bit weird).

Woops I should know better even after an all nighter.
After all, I've known people that worked there!

Kinda like with that Jade/Diet fiasco a while back.

It's unfortunate it didn't get any recognition on Reddit due to not the best title. There's this thread on reddit right now though https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/a47s2x/happy_17th_birthday_d/
