Hi All,

We've pinned down a hard date for the 2nd annual LLVM Developer  
meeting: August 1, 2008!

The meeting will be held on the Apple Campus, in Cupertino, CA.  We've  
got a great space with two separate rooms that are next door to each  
other, one that comfortably holds 40 people and one that holds 50  
people.  In addition, there is a large area outside either room with  
big tables where people can have informal discussions etc.  Given that  
we had about 60 people attend last year, this extra space will be very  
useful :).

At this point, we are planning for an all-day event, and can have two  
talks happening in parallel with each other.  While this means that  
everyone won't be able to make it to every talk, we will record them  
and can plan it so that overlapping talks are on very different topics  
(maybe a clang talk at the same time as a low-level backend talk).   
This means we have 'space' for 12-16 talks, but the number we end up  
with depends on who is interested in speaking.

What we need from you:

Now that we have a date, we hope you can book travel and confirm your  
attendance: This is particularly important for speakers.  If you would  
like to give a presentation, please let us know!  Jonathan will start  
adding this information to the web page, please email him (jon at alacatialabs.com 
) and CC Tanya (tonic at nondot.org).

If you are a student contributor, or a regular llvm contributor with  
financial constraints that would prevent you from attending, we will  
try to help offset some of your travel costs.  Please send information  
about your situation, expected expenses, and other relevant  
information to Jon/Tanya.  Once we have an idea of the demand, we will  
decide what we can do.  Priority will be given to attendees who are  
giving a presentation.

Other details: admission is free, and we will provide lunch.  There  
are many hotels in the Cupertino area.  We will be investigating  
getting a room block at some nearby hotel, and will update the web  
page with that info when it becomes available.   Also, we plan to do  
some sort of group dinner afterwards, we will also figure this out in  
the coming months. :)

Please see http://llvm.org/devmtg/current/ for evolving details.  If  
you have any questions, llvmdev is a great place to discuss this event.

I look forward to meeting (more of) you!
