The slides and videos from the 2014 LLVM Developers' Meeting that took place in San Jose at the end of October are now online.

All of the LLVM compiler talk from the annual two day event is now online. Well, the exception to the meeting material being online is that videos from the talks by Apple employees weren't permitted to be distributed at this time.

The available slides and videos from this year's event can be found via this LLVM.org web-page. Some of the most interesting presentations include:

LLVM Stable Releases - Tom Stellard of AMD talking about LLVM stable releases and the need for them due to graphics driver usage, etc.

What does it take to make LLVM as performant as GCC? - A talk by ARM and Qualcomm.

FTL - WebKit's LLVM-based JIT - An interesting Apple project for users of WebKit.

OpenMP support in Clang/LLVM - OpenMP 3.1 support is hoped for in LLVM/Clang 3.6 while most of OpenMP 4.0 should be done by LLVM/Clang 3.7... This though depends in part on the review speed. With OpenMP 4.0 they do plan to support the Xeon Phi MIC co-processor, GPUs, FPGAs, and other targets supported by OpenMP 4.0.
