LLVM/Clang Developer Videos Worth Watching
LLVM is a popular topic right now with NVIDIA's new and open CUDA compiler being based upon it, LLVM being used within graphics drivers, and general advancements to its compiler support. For those wanting to learn more, here's some interesting videos worth watching from the LLVM 2011 Developer Meeting.
Held in mid-November in San Jose, California was the annual developers meeting for 2011. The videos from this summit are now available online for anyone to watch. It took a while to get the videos out the door, but they are of nice quality and edited.
