Topic: LLVM developers meeting


tmandry (Oct 15 2019 at 21:59, on Zulip):

Next week I'll be attending the LLVM Developer's Meeting in San Jose. This'll be my first time attending. I've heard there's been very little representation from the Rust community at these, which happen twice a year.

Mostly I'll just be going to learn more about LLVM and how other languages are using it. That said, I was wondering if anyone is curious about a particular topic in the schedule (or other topic that someone there would know about).

tmandry (Oct 15 2019 at 22:05, on Zulip):

Short list of topics from the schedule I'm interested in:
- MLIR and how it relates (or could relate) to MIR
- Inter-procedural Optimization
- Ownership SSA (used by Swift)
- Pretty much anything related to optimizations or static analysis

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 12:58, on Zulip):

@tmandry are you there now? maybe it's a good time to announce the llvm ice-breaker thing!

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 12:58, on Zulip):

We are basically good to go there anyway

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 12:58, on Zulip):

Is there a lightning talk section? :)

tmandry (Oct 22 2019 at 15:10, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis there is, but I’ll need some cliff notes :)

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 15:14, on Zulip):

@tmandry I'd be happy to help you out :) the tl;dr would be "if you are curious, sign up, and maybe you can help us to fix bugs". I think one of the things I would want to emphasize is that knowledge of LLVM is what is most needed, in many cases.

tmandry (Oct 22 2019 at 15:45, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis great! where should I direct people who are interested?

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 15:46, on Zulip):

@tmandry probably I should publish this blog post -- actually, why don't you take a look? it contains (I think) all the information I would want to convey. I was thinking as I wrote the above though that I should make sure it's clear that knowledge of LLVM is primary

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 16:56, on Zulip):

@tmandry ok I pushed a new section ("who should join")

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 16:59, on Zulip):

@T-compiler/WG-meta / @pnkfelix / @WG-llvm -- I think i'm inclined to 'pull the trigger' on the LLVM ICE-breaker announcement. Any objections?

tmandry (Oct 22 2019 at 16:59, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis looks good to me :)

tmandry (Oct 22 2019 at 17:00, on Zulip):

(also, apparently you had to sign up to give a lightning talk, but I’ll still try)

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 17:00, on Zulip):

ah well

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 17:00, on Zulip):

I shoulda' thought of it earlier

rkruppe (Oct 22 2019 at 17:01, on Zulip):

No objection on publishing the blog post but yeah lighting talks are part of the CfP

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 17:42, on Zulip):

OK, posted. Hey @nagisa, @Nikita Popov, or @rkruppe -- you subscribe to llvm-dev (or whatever the main mailing list is)? Maybe you want to forward that blog post there? I guess I could do it, but I'm not a subscriber.

nagisa (Oct 22 2019 at 17:43, on Zulip):

I do not subscribe, but I’m sure @Nikita Popov or @rkruppe do!

Santiago Pastorino (Oct 22 2019 at 20:09, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis looks great, @tmandry hope you're able to get in the lightning talks lineup

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 20:10, on Zulip):

I do not subscribe, but I’m sure Nikita Popov or rkruppe do!

if y'all don't, or would prefer not to e-mail, let me know and I'll happily do so

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 20:10, on Zulip):

I suppose there is probably some twitter bot I should @-cite

nagisa (Oct 22 2019 at 20:23, on Zulip):

@llvmorg mby?

rkruppe (Oct 22 2019 at 20:26, on Zulip):

Also @llvmweekly or @asbradbury so it gets into LLVM Weekly

rkruppe (Oct 22 2019 at 20:27, on Zulip):

I am subscribed to llvm-dev and would send an email if you draft the fluff around the link but can't promise I'll get to it soon if I have to do much more than copy, paste, and hit send
