Yes, absolutely! I made the move from C++ to C# about 15 years
ago. The C# ecosystem is really a pretty good place to be. But
its metaprogramming capabilities, while once competitive, are now
pretty unimpressive. The programming language state-of-the-art
has come a long way in the last 20 years (even if most people are
still using old tech.) The D language's CFTE is really THE game
changer. I know of nothing else like it, and I could make some
really good use of that in my C# code base...
So I'm using D for some new projects. Of course, it has some
other pretty innovative things too. For example, the scope(exit)
construct. That's soooo much better than needing to enclose
things in layer after layer of try-catch blocks. Other languages
should all be copying this construct.
Anyway, yes, D is a very compelling option for experienced C#
developers who want to be more on the cutting edge.
