News and articles from around the web

At the X.Org Developers' Conference, Bas Nieuwenhuizen and Daniel Schürmann presented on ACO, a new compiler backend for GCN GPUs. This is an alternative to the LLVM backend that aims to reduce compile time. Jason Ekstrand's (Intel) presentation on How not to write a back-end compiler may also be of interest for those who wish to learn more about GPU compilation challenges.

Ticket sales for the LLVM Foundations Women in Compilers and Tools Workshop will end this week.
