Inside Clang and LLVMPublished on January 9, 2016.
I have always been fascinated by the compilers world. My bachelor thesis allowed me to explore the internal design of the Clang C++ compiler, and it was a delightful and enlightening experience. Even if this is not my area of research it still drives a lot of my attention, and I’m still following the Clang project very closely. So when I met Marco Arena, the founder of the Italian C++ Community, at the last year’s Meeting C++ conference, we decided that I had to give a talk about Clang at one of their meetups sooner or later.
And it happened. I actually gave such talk at the last community meetup that took place in Rome on October 24th. They recently published the recordings of the talk which you can find embedded above (in italian). It was a very introductory talk, focusing on the C++ front-end with only a brief glance at the LLVM backend. Enjoy!
