Promoting D Projects (or Internet Marketing 101)

So you've written a cool project in D, and it's ready for others to use or to get involved with helping develop it further. Just posting a Github link isn't going to work. All your blood, sweat and effort will just go to waste. You'll need to provide a way for people who want to know about your project to be able to find it.

The steps are:

  1. Create a good starting point for the project
  2. Let people know about it

Creating a good starting point

For many using a Github README is enough, but rolling out your own website creates a more professional look. (Don't forget that with Github Pages hosting is free.)

Promoting the Project

Submit the page or article to the following:

If your project is a conversion of an existing project to D, email the project leader of that existing project and suggest that he incorporate a link to your project on his page.

For the absolutely most effective results, submit articles to:

Have a look whether there are conferences in your field at which you could present your project.
