Thursday next week (June 1st), another LLVM Zurich Social will take
# When: June 1st, 19:00, CAB E 72
# Technical Presentation
At this point in time we do not yet have any technical presentation
announced. While the primary aspect of the this event is to socialize,
attendees are invited to propose related technical presentations.
# Event Page
A social meetup to discuss compilation and code generation,
with a special focus on LLVM, clang, Polly and related projects.
Our primary focus is to provide a venue (and drinks & snacks)
that enables free discussions between interested people
without imposing an agenda/program. This is a great
opportunity to informally discuss your own projects,
get project ideas or just learn about what people at
ETH and around Zurich are doing with LLVM and compilation
# Who: - Anybody interested -
- ETH students and staff
- LLVM developers and enthusiasts external to ETH
# What is LLVM ?
LLVM (http://www.llvm.org) is an open source project that provides
a collection of modular compiler and toolchain technologies. It is
centered around a modern SSA-based compiler around which an entire
ecosystem of compiler technology was developed. Most well know is
the clang C++ compiler, which is e.g. used to deploy iOS. Beyond this
a diverse set of projects is developed under the umbrella of LLVM.
These include code generators and assemblers for various interesting
architectures, a jit compiler, a debugger, run-time libraries (C++
Standard Library, OpenMP, Opencl library), program sanity checkers,
and many more.
LLVM has itself grown out of a research project more than 10 years ago
and is the base of many exciting research projects today:
See you soon,
