## Why D?
## Why BioD?
[D is a language](http://www.dlang.org) that suits parallel programming
because the compiler provides certain guarantees. The D programmming language offers multi-paradigm programming features
and can be considered as both a low and high-level
hybrid object orientated and functional (OOP/FP) programming language. D's templating/generics features are
far easier than that of C++.
BioD makes use of [D programming language](http://www.dlang.org) features that make it possible to develop high
performance bioinformatics tools (e.g. [sambamba](https://github.com/biod/sambamba)). D is both a low and high-level
hybrid object orientated and functional (OOP/FP) programming language with templating/generic features are far easier
than that of C++.
