I am wondering which companies still use D actively? For example, does Mercedes Benz Research (heavily) rely on D? I am aware of the page https://dlang.org/orgs-using-d.html but I am not sure how active these companies still are in using D. E.g. Netflix's Vectorflow has not been updated for nearly 2 years.
Thanks David

Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America is a subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz AG.

We started using D in a joint project with Bosch for autonomous driving. It is public information that now both companies pursue their autonomous driving projects with different partners. We at Mercedes-Benz still use and develop the same tools written in D. I can't know whether Bosch is doing the same.

> (heavily) rely on D?

C++ seems to be the predominant programming language used in autonomous driving for various reasons: It is certified for safety critical applications, there are commonly used matrix libraries, and autonomous driving experts who are experienced in C++ are many. Python is another major language and there is some interest in Rust within the developers.

Although tools written in D have been used daily at times by hundreds of developers, I still can't say that we "rely heavily" on D. It's because all existing tools could have been written in any other language with various compromises.

I am fortunate and very happy to still develop in D and write programs that are appreciated by our developers. :)

Industry Reps & Contributors

Iain Buclaw for GDC
Mario Kröplin for Funkwerk
Mathias Lang for ZeroOne (formerly known as BPFKorea)
Adam D. Ruppe as a Contributor
Robert Schadek for Symmetry Investments
Joseph Rushton Wakeling for Frequenz

I think at least these companies (Symmetry, FunkWerk, ZeroOne, Frequenz)

One more is Putao from China or someone there, who is investing time to Hunt-framework development

Also if I’m not wrong author of Vibe.d wrote that they using D in closed source business solution.

Several small start-ups/companies as well.

Symmetry uses D extensively on projects like a programming language, enterprise software, and libraries to analyze market data using quantitative finance.

SARC B.V. started to rely on D for production two years ago when we implemented telemetry. Since then we have come a long way in converting our Extended Pascal source code to D. We have started to use D for new applications, that make use of existing library code that is transcompiled daily. For existing applications we have started mirroring every commit to the original code with a commit of the transcompiled code in git, so that we have some months of commit history when we make the switch, which we call D-day. This will happen later this year, and we are all very excited about it. Right now my focus is on setting up the production environment, on interfacing with C++ and on QA.

So yeah, SARC uses D actively, and I would say we rely heavily on D already.

Such companies can click on the “Improve this page” link, make a PR and get their logo on there. It’s almost as easy as editing a wiki page.

It seems likely to me most D programmers don't interact at all with the forums, nor the community (like with any other programming language). Asking on these forums who is using D in the vast world is going to get biased by the few that peruse the official forums.

That's true. Speaking with a developer on twitter I found out he lives in Venice like me and he is a fan of dlang.

But I've never seen him here, he said he doesn't interact with any community.

(and my company actively use dlang in production for many projects and for our website)
