Second Annual LLVM Developers' Meeting
August 1, 2008 - Apple Inc. Campus, Cupertino, California, U.S.A.

The second annual LLVM Developers' Meeting will be held this year at  
Apple Inc.'s main campus in Cupertino, California:


Like last year's inaugural meeting, the meeting serves as a forum for  
both LLVM developers and users to get acquainted, to learn how LLVM is  
used, and to exchange ideas about LLVM and its (potential) applications.

We invite everyone to officially register by July 20, 2008 for this  
meeting via our website:


We believe this meeting will be of interest to the following people:

• Active LLVM developers and users.
• Anyone interested in using LLVM, either as part of a commercial  
product, open-source project, or research.
• Compiler, programming language, and language runtime enthusiasts.
• Those interested in using compiler technology in novel and  
interesting ways.

Beyond discussing the core LLVM compiler infrastructure, this year's  
meeting will also dedicate a significant amount of attention to Clang,  
LLVM's new frontend for C-based languages.

We also invite you to sign up for the official Developer Meeting  
mailing list to be kept informed of updates concerning the meeting:


Last year's inaugural meeting was a success for LLVM and the LLVM  
community at large. We fully expect that this year's meeting will be  
an even greater success.  Please join us!

Potential Speakers

If you are interested in presenting at this year's LLVM Developers'  
Meeting, please submit your talk proposal to us by June 30, 2008 via  
the website:


About LLVM

The Low-Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) is a collection of libraries and  
tools that make it easy to build compilers, optimizers, Just-In-Time  
code generators, and many other compiler-related programs. LLVM uses a  
single, language-independent virtual instruction set both as an  
offline code representation (to communicate code between compiler  
phases and to run-time systems) and as the compiler internal  
representation (to analyze and transform programs). This persistent  
code representation allows a common set of sophisticated compiler  
techniques to be applied at compile-time, link-time, install-time, run- 
time, or "idle-time" (between program runs).

The strengths of the LLVM infrastructure are its extremely simple  
design (which makes it easy to understand and use), source-language  
independence, powerful mid-level optimizer, automated compiler  
debugging support, extensibility, and its stability and reliability.  
LLVM is currently being used to host a wide variety of academic  
research projects and commercial projects.

About Clang

Clang is a new frontend for C-based languages, targeting support for  
C, Objective-C, and C++.

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 100% compatibility with  
GCC and a high quality of implementation that makes Clang fast,  
scalable, and easy to customize and expand.

Clang was announced at last year's Developer Meeting.  This year's  
meeting will include an extensive discussion of Clang and its  
applications (both currently existing and planned).
