LLVMLinux: Embracing the Dragon - Behan Webster, Convese in Code

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will provide an update on the status of the LLVMLinux project; a project which is cooperating with both the Linux kernel and LLVM communities to build the Linux kernel with Clang/LLVM. This talk will also cover new things in LLVM which make clang even more attractive to the kernel community. LLVM is an extensive compiler technology suite which is already commonplace from Android/Renderscript and OpenCL through to high performance computing clusters.

This talk is for developers and system integrators who are interested in LLVM technologies and using clang to build the Linux Kernel.

This session presents an alternative toolchain and related technologies with which to build the Linux kernel, as well as other parts of the Linux ecosystem. LLVM and clang are an attractive toolchain for individuals, projects, researchers, and companies who want an alternative to the more traditional tools. People are attracted to LLVM for the developer community, newer compiler architecture and approach, and in some cases code license. At the very least the hope is to provide competition in the tool arena such that all developers win.
