I'll be in California next week for the second RISC-V workshop. Me and my colleague Wei will both be giving talks about recent lowRISC progress. Say hi if you're going to be there. I might have some spare time towards the end of the week too if anyone wants to meet up.

News and articles from around the web

WebAssembly has been announced. It is a new collaboration between browser vendors to define a new binary executable format that can be used as a compilation target. A good summary is available here on the emscripten mailing list.

Tilmann Scheller has written up a pair of blog posts about improving build times of Clang. He steps through a wide range of generic approaches (using Ninja, ccache, the gold linker, LTO+PGO in the host compiler etc etc) and some specific to Clang/LLVM.

The Cambridge LLVM Social will be taking place on Wed 24th June, 7.30pm at the Blue.
