Hi Siddharth,

It is better to ask more specific questions on the dev mailing list. LLVM
is a large project with many technology areas and the advice to someone
interested in starting in front end development would be different from
advice to someone interested in optimizations or a specific back end. If
you state your interests, it is more likely that people will offer great

As a general bit of advice, you can do a couple of things:
1. Go through the tutorials (http://llvm.org/docs/tutorial/index.html)
2. Look for a bug that is related to what you're interested in and try to
fix it. Find bugs here: https://llvm.org/bugs/describecomponents.cgi. Once
you start investigating the bug, you can ask very directed questions both
on the mailing list and on IRC where there are always helpful people around.

Hope this helps.
