The call for papers for the LLVM-HPC2018 workshop at SC18 is now out. Paper submissions are due for September 1st 2018 and the workshop takes place on November 12th.

Bloombeg have released clang-metatool, a framework for reusing code in Clang tools. "When we first started writing clang tools, we realized that there is a lot of life cycle management that we had to repeat. In some cases, people advocate the usage of global variables to manage the life-cycle of that data, but that makes code reuse across tools even harder. Additionally, we also learned that when writing a tool, it will be beneficial if the code is split in two phases. First a data collection phase, and later a post-processing phase that actually performed the bulk of the logic of the tool."
