Sanjoy, Joseph, and I will be hosting a BoF on using LLVM to build
compilers for managed languages. We're curious to hear who's planning
on attending and what topics you'd like to hear about. Depending on the
expected audience, we're happy to do anything between a rough "what to
expect getting started" to a down in the weeds working session on
relevant optimization or ABI related topics. If you're planning on
attending, please let us know. If you have particular topics you'd like
to hear about or discuss, please reply to this thread.
The major areas we've thought of include:
- High level architectures for successful projects: debuggable
architectures, working with the community, etc..
- Dealing w/ABI requirements like calling conventions, exceptions,
patchable calls, Inline caches, frame inspection, and deoptimization
- Lowering/compilation strategies for high level languages
- Differences in canonical IR from traditional C code and resulting
