Great, welcome!

Did you successfully build LLVM? Did you run the test?

It depends on what you want to achieve. We have a list of open projects
here: http://llvm.org/OpenProjects.html

Otherwise there is the documentation: http://llvm.org/docs/ and in
particular the Kaleidoscope tutorial:

The test directory in LLVM is a good place to get to understand specific
part of LLVM as well.

It really depends on your goals/interests. There are many books about
compilers design and/or algorithms, as well as many academic papers in the
same domain. But maybe you're more interested in specific applications:
security, bug finding, etc.
