Topic: LLVM lecture


Santiago Pastorino (Mar 18 2020 at 14:11, on Zulip):
[@spastorino] Schedule a lecture about LLVM with @Alex Crichton
    Alex can do a lecture with maybe not really up to date content
    mw can do a Q&A session
    asked nikic too
Santiago Pastorino (Mar 18 2020 at 14:12, on Zulip):

about this :point_up: task, Alex is not able anymore

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 18 2020 at 14:12, on Zulip):

mw has stepped away from the project

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 18 2020 at 14:13, on Zulip):

and didn't get an answer from nikic

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 18 2020 at 14:13, on Zulip):

unsure who else could be a good candidate

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 18 2020 at 14:13, on Zulip):

centril (Mar 18 2020 at 14:13, on Zulip):

I don't know much about LLVM

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 18 2020 at 15:38, on Zulip):

the idea was really about codegen -> LLVM, for some reason I thought you might

Santiago Pastorino (Mar 18 2020 at 15:38, on Zulip):

:)

bjorn3 (Mar 18 2020 at 18:58, on Zulip):

I have worked on cg_ssa, but there are parts I don't understand very well yet.

I can only write up some basic blog post style things as I did the last time around for something else.

btw @nagisa your notes were great and have been made into a rough skeleton chapter: https://rustc-dev-guide.rust-lang.org/backend/backend.html
