If you're interested in what went on at the RISC-V Workshop in Barcelona last week, you might want to read my live blog for day one and day two.

News and articles from around the web

C++ Insights is a new Clang-based tool by Andreas Fertig which tries to reveal the sort of "magic" the compiler does behind the scenes, e.g. compiler provided functions or automatic downcasts. It does this via a source-to-source transformation. Be sure to check out the online demo.

The first LLVM social in Beijing will be held on May 19th.

A new series of meetups in Sydney, Australia have been announced. The first meetup on May 31st features introductory talks on getting started with LLVM. "This meetup is also a kick-off meetup for a series dedicated to bringing more enthusiasts together and up to speed with the LLVM tools, development process, and internals. We're also looking for interested presenters and those with experience already working with the LLVM compiler infrastructure."

More videos have now been posted to YouTube from the recent EuroLLVM Developers' Meeting.
