I've just updated the DConf Online 2021 page with the conference schedule. The details for the keynote talks will come later.

Adam currently intends for his livecoding session to be a continuation of the project he started in last year's session. He may change his mind before then, though, and I'll update the page if he does.

Razvan Nitu will be joining Walter and Atila for the Ask Us Anything! session this year, so if you have any questions for him in his role as Pull Request & Issue Manager, or about the D Summer School he and Eduard Staniloiu are running at the university in Bucharest, that will be a great opportunity to ask him.

I expect the DConf Online 2021 swag will be ready to go by the middle of next week. In the meantime, if you haven't picked up a BEERCONF! shirt yet, now's a good time to get one and have it before the next #Beerconf. You can currently get 15% off that and anything else you buy with the code SEASONSALE4U. Purchasing through this link will earn the Foundation a referral fee on top of the royalty we'll get from the sale.

I saw an issue in the text on the page on Stefan's talk description:
"But is their a better way?" -> there

Also, what about having a reference to the DConf on dlang.org front page?

Adam beyond the continuation... we need a new and simply Web Browser written in D. :)

You know back in 2013ish I actually was doing a little one. htmlwidget.d in my github repo. It always sucked but it is tempting to go back to it; with my new functions it would suck slightly less.

But realistically I wanted to do something I could finish in one hour and obviously that didn't work so now I gotta finish it in one hour more. Nothing too big can be squeezed in there.

Maybe we could do a community project - D Web Browser (The Web Browser)

Would be a cool fun project but I'm just going to be honest. It'll never be a webbrowser that takes off or can even remotely be used.

The amount of effort put into browsers, especially security issues is insane and the scope of an actual browser is a project that requires more people than D will ever have available.

No, it would just be a fun exercise. But maybe it would be even better to focus on something really useful instead :)

If we could get like a prioritized TODO-list. Although that part (compiling the list) seems to be the hardest.
