In this first tutorial of the series, he gives an overview of what happens when compiling a D source file, then shows how to set up an environment from which to build dmd and the standard library/runtime binary. The next video will use this setup to start making changes to dmd.
Thanks, this is great (for posix builds).
However I'm not sure the Windows instructions in the video are correct. It is good Dennis mentioned to use DM make as the wiki only mentioned that for the VS build instructions (I have updated it to make it clear).
I tried running
make -f win32.mak from the phobos root and got this:
Error: don't know how to make '../dmd/druntime/lib/druntime.lib'
So it seems on Windows druntime still does have to be built before that (unlike on Linux). So I ran
make -f win32.mak from dmd/druntime and got this error:

I don't know what
Before trying phobos win32.mak I also tried the win64.mak but it needs
cl.exe which apparently I can get here:
But chrome says 'Your connection is not private' and won't let me download that even if I look under Advanced. I also tried curl:
curl: (60) SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name 'ftp.digitalmars.com'
More details here: https://curl.se/docs/sslcerts.html
curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not
establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and
how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above.
