I'm Andre and new to LLVM in general as well as the open-source community.
I'm not sure if this is the right platform to bring up my questions but
here is a bit of background.  I found a video that referenced
high-performance algorithms used in LLVM (

When I saw this, I told myself that I want to work on high-performance
projects because that's the depth and fluidity of data structures and
algorithms in projects I want to work on.

Going through the LLVM website and links has taken me down a rabbit hole
I'm not sure where to start digging.  I would like to work on a project
that, in addition to my interests above, also allows me to use the latest
C++ features.

I am looking for guidance and possibly mentorship on a good starting task.
Looking at the beginner tags in the bug tracker website but it didn't give
me a great feel on what I wanted to work on.  I also had more interest in
bigger projects such as those listed https://llvm.org/OpenProjects.html#what

>From what I've seen, I think what I am interested in working on is the LLVM
core but I'm open to suggestions for recommendations.

Thank you,
