Save the date for the 2012 LLVM Developers’ Meeting

The sixth annual bay area LLVM Developers’ Meeting will be held on November 7th and 8th at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, CA.

As with previous meetings, this gathering serves as a forum for both developers and users of LLVM to meet, learn how LLVM is used, and to exchange ideas about LLVM and its potential applications.

This 1.5 day event will include a half day hacking session and social on November 7th, followed by a full day program including talks, birds of feather sessions, posters and dinner on November 8th.

New this year will be a $25 registration fee which will help support the event. If you need financial assistance for this fee, please contact Tanya Lattner ( Registration is capped at 250 attendees. Unlike previous years, the dinner will not have a lower cap and all are invited to attend. Registration will open on May 22nd.

A huge thank you to our sponsors: Apple, Qualcomm Innovation Center (QuIC) and Google! However, we are still looking for more sponsors to cover the cost of speakers and students needing travel assistance. If your company is interested, please send email to

About LLVM

The LLVM umbrella project is a collection of modular and reusable compiler and toolchain technologies, including parsing technology, optimizers, code generators, assemblers, runtime libraries, a debugger, and much more. All of these are distinguished by their modern and modular library-based designs, which has led to LLVM being broadly adopted both by industry and in academia. For more information, please visit:

About Clang

Clang, a subproject of LLVM, is a modular and reusable parser for C-based languages. It supports C, Objective-C, and C++ (including great support for C++’11). Clang is mature and fast, and sports a broad range of features aimed at improving the usability of the compiler, as well as enabling entirely new uses of its technology. Like the rest of LLVM, Clang consists of a collection of libraries, making it versatile in its applications. The goal of Clang is to be multipurpose, allowing not only the creation of standalone compilers for C-based languages, but also intelligent IDEs, refactoring tools, source to source translators, static analysis tools, and countless others. Other design goals of Clang include close compatibility with GCC and a high quality of implementation that makes Clang fast, scalable,and easy to customize and expand.
