Not to rain on anyone's parade, but it's listed under C++, the title of the course says "Next C++", and the instructor does not claim expertise in the D language:

I would not recommend this course based on the preview. It covers the "main topics of D programming language which includes variables, loops, functions, logic, and OOP." D has nice features for these, but I would not consider a D course complete without an introduction to static compilation features.

I'd say this sounds more like an introduction to programming, using Dlang.

Wouldn't it be nice if all programmers wrote all programs for free.

Maybe you're too advanced for this kind of learning material.

Yes. That's what it is. There's still people learning to program everyday and I believe its a good learning material for such an audience. There's such tutorials for pretty much all programming languages on Udemy.

I don't see what's wrong with that..isn't the D "what C++ should have been"? Synonymous to "Next C++".

I'm fine with what it is, and I'm not trying to say it's not useful to anyone.

But that's not what it says, it says: "The Complete D programming Language Course". This is not "complete".

But I also didn't pay for it to see, so maybe it's more involved than what the preview says.

Ki Rill is doing a free one on YouTube.

I was actually saying we need an intermediate to advanced D programming course somewhere today. To supplement an introductory one like this.

Yes and no. In the beginning it felt like D aim was to fix C++ pains. In the end and I mean now, it's a language with a pretty unique set of features that managed to absorb years of language design and engineering experience.  Unfortunately, this didn't happen fast.
