    Can you use D to make games? Yes. Has it been used in a major release? It has now. But what benefits does it have over C++? Is it ready for mass use? Does treating code as data with a traditional C++ engine work? This talk will cover Remedy's usage of the D programming language in Quantum Break and also provide some details on where we want to take usage of it in the future.

    Takeaway

    Knowledge of a realistic alternative to C++, real world usage, enthusiasm for the language and wondering what the possibilities could be for your own usage.

    Intended Audience

    Targeted towards programmers, both gameplay and engine. Knowledge of C++ is required, C# knowledge desirable (as D has more in common with C# than C++).
