Am just having a look at all those developer courses on Udemy to learn Go or Rust. The offering there is actually quite amazing. Makes me think that it would be very beneficial for the further spread of D that also for D a well-done developer course were available on a learning platform such as Udemy or Coursera.

I don't think I will ever do any development at work with Rust and probably also not at home, but I would nevertheless like to take the Rust course on Udemy, for example. The courses cost very little money anyway. My company has a company account on Udemy an I would not have to pay anything anyway. Taking the course would be for sure quite interesting and be a fun learning experience whether I were totally convinced about Rust or not.

In that way I believe many people would take a D course just out of general interest and afterwards might be hooked.

Right. Although D will never be able to compete with the number of available Go and Rust courses, I'd really wish the Ali's book based course on educative.io would be available on Udemy at least. I've never heard of educative.io and learnt about it only from the corresponding D forum post ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That'll be nice.

There's a collection of D videos on YouTube in these playlists if anyone is interested.

Will probably do another with coding videos specifically. D videos are mostly scattered all around. And there's this D YouTube tutorial gang kind of thing building up 😉️
