LLVM Weekly - #123, May 9th 2016

Welcome to the one hundred and twenty-third issue of LLVM Weekly, a weekly newsletter (published every Monday) covering developments in LLVM, Clang, and related projects. LLVM Weekly is brought to you by Alex Bradbury. Subscribe to future issues at https://llvmweekly.org and pass it on to anyone else you think may be interested.

If you're in London tomorrow you may be interested in the NMI Open Source Conference. You can register until midday today. I'll be giving a brief talk on lowRISC. While on the subject of conferences, if you are interested in diversity and inclusion in computing education, you may want to check out the CAS #include diversity conference in Manchester on the 11th June.

News and articles from around the web
