In recent years much work has been put into creating programming languages which embody a blend of many of the most admired characteristics of their predecessors. One such language is D, which provides developers with the speed of languages such as C and C++, but with the power and flexibility of languages such as Ruby and Python. Learning to Tango with D introduces you to the powerful D language, with special attention given to the Tango software library. A concise yet thorough overview of the language's syntax and features is presented, followed by an introduction to Tango, the popular general purpose library which you'll return to time and again when building your D applications. Authored by prominent D developers Kris Bell, Lars Ivar Igesund, Sean Kelly, and Michael Parker, you'll gain not only the knowledge required to begin building your own D applications, but also benefit from the insight these authors have acquired due to their extensive experience working with and participating in the development of the D language.
