LLVM Dev Meeting - Talk Proposal Deadline 9/30

The deadline to submit a talk or BOF proposal for the 2011 LLVM Developers’ Meeting is this Friday (9/30). Please be sure to get your proposals in!

We are in particular looking for talks on LLVM or Clang infrastructure. These are talks that describe some of the core components of LLVM or Clang such that someone can take that information and implement new things such as optimizations, languages, or backends.

Please submit your talk or BOF proposals here:
http://www.llvm.org/devmtg/talk.php

Thanks,

Is there sufficient interest out there for BOFs on either:

* unicode/localization, or
* VFS (virtual file system)

These are two areas where we find clang's current support to be lacking
and have some ideas for improvements, but would like to hear from others
before suggesting a proposal.

Thanks,

Probably some here.

* VFS (virtual file system)

Could you be more specific here?

The existing buffering requires that code be written out before it
can be passed to clang. We would like to be able to pass code to clang
directly from a memory mapped file (e.g. from an un-saved editor buffer).

On July 19, 2010, Daniel Dunbar wrote a good description here

Seems reasonable. I don't know that It needs to be BoF session if you're just working on it.

-eric

I don't know of anyone who's actually started working on either
localization or a VFS API. But I'll hold off on the BoFs unless
we see more interest for them here...

Hi,

Would there be interest in a BoF discussion on the state of cross-compilation and interacting with the toolchain? I'm thinking a discussion on how best to improve the experience of using the Clang driver for a cross-compiled or specialised target.

Cheers,

James

Hi James,

Yes, definitely.

I second that!

Today is the last day. You have until midnight PDT, before the form closes.

Thanks,
