Kris Bell is a Scottish pirate and wannabe musician, part-time photographer, avid traveler, open-source advocate, miscreant techie dweeb and a principal Tango contributor. He enjoys swimming, cycling, sailing, occasional hikes and recently took up rock climbing. Previously, he dabbled in a bit of car-racing and skydiving, and once took a flying-trapeze course where the latter served only to cement his vocation of choice. He lives in California, though hails from the Scottish West Coast and has a dodgy set of bagpipes to remind him of home.
Kris has a varied background in engineering and architecture, spanning application servers to rapid application development (RAD) toolsets, embedded-OS to graphics engines, workflow to high-performance clustering & failover substrata. Some commercial systems he's designed/built include enterprise & Internet application platforms, factory automation systems, carrier-grade middleware, immersive environment simulation and crazy interactive clothing. In a different age he would probably have been a steam-locomotive engineer, a swashbuckling jolly-roger, or a funky bell-ringer.
Michael Parker, originally from Atlanta, found himself in the Republic of Korea as a U.S. Army medic in the summer of 1991. After volunteering for two more tours in Korea, he left the Army in 1994 to teach English in Seoul. In the intervening years, he has taught English in a variety of environments and has occasionally worked in different capacities for the U.S. Government and government contractors in Korea.
In the late 1990s, Mike took up game programming as a hobby. Eventually, his passion for software development expanded beyond games and he secured a series of J2EE web application development contracts with several small Korean companies. He discovered D in 2003 and a few months later created the Derelict project at Dsource.org. He became involved with Tango in the fall of 2006. Currently, Mike is developing his first commercial computer game. He continues to teach English part time in Seoul, where he lives with his wife, Mi Kyoung, and their dogs, Charlie, Mini, Joey and Happy.
This is quite concise to learn tango if u want to start from somewhere more organized.
If though it doesn't explain D programming well enough, this problem is less obvious if... Read more
