Around two years ago I attended the 2016 LLVM Developer’s Meeting and led a “Birds of a Feather” (BoF) discussion on the topic of shipping software as LLVM IR. The objective was to bring out all the parties who are clearly doing so already or interested in doing so and to try to find ways to work together.
I’ll hopefully write more about this in the future, but for now here’s a short post about this event as well as a link to the slides used for the discussion.
Posted on the ALLVM github organization, the allvm-meta repository is now available— and because naming is hard it ended up being the repository with perhaps the least “meta” content.
Even so I’m excited to make this public and will give a brief overview below.
