Berlin: LLVM Hackday #1, Betahaus, Oct. 22nd

Hello everyone

We finally fixed the date for our first hackday in Berlin on Saturday, October 22nd. We will be at Betahaus Cafe from 2pm to open end. Bring along your projects and questions and we will try working them out together! On this weekend meeting we’re happy to also welcome a few guests from outside of Berlin.

Please find detailed info on the meetup page:

Cheers
Stefan

AFAIK we are the only currently active group in Germany, but from following the list I spotted Johannes (Saarbrücken?) and Piotr (Munich?). They may have more info for you? Thx

I am in Warsaw. There are bunch of Clang/Clang-extra in Munich.

Hey Stefan,

I am (usually) in Saarbrücken together with my colleges Simon Moll, Tina
Jung and others that work on LLVM (Polly, Whole Function/Region
vectorization, Parallel IR,...). We are all part of the Compiler Design
Lab (Prof. Sebastian Hack), but also other people in Saarbrücken work
with/on LLVM. However, I am currently visiting Tobias Grosser at ETH and
will be in the US on Oct 22nd so I unfortunately cannot attend the Berlin
Hackday.

Regarding other groups/places/socials:

Two days ago there was an LLVM social in Zurich (at least close to
southern Germany) which will probably be repeated every other month.
I added Tobias Grosser (the organizer) to the CC.

If there is interest we could also establish one in Saarbrücken I guess.
People from Paris and other nearby places might also be interested in
that one. (I added Michael, who works on Polly, as a Paris connection.)
Also there is a direct connection from Berlin by plane that might make
it interesting for you guys.

In Munich there are mostly Google folks (e.g., Manuel Klimek) working on
clang tooling. I do not know if they might be interested in an LLVM
social though.

In Passau there was Andreas Simbuerger working on Polly. I added him to
the CC to see if there is interest in a social.

Afaik, there are people working on/with LLVM in Karlsruhe (KIT) but we
have to check again. The same holds for places like Erlangen and Mainz
to mention just a few.

I hope we can figure out something to strengthen the local community.

Cheers,
  Johannes

Hi Johannes, thanks a lot for the comprehensive overview. That's very
interesting.
Maybe we should rename the thread to LLVM folks Europe :slight_smile:

I would definitely join occasionally. I am out in Africa from November
till May, but if you establish a group I'd be happy to meet you guys in
Q3/Q4 2017!

By the way do you know of such LLVM meetups in southern Germany?

This seems to be a clear yes. Glad you asked :slight_smile:
