News and articles from around the web

The 2020 US LLVM Developers' Meeting has been announced for September 28-29 in San Jose. "Given the current situation regarding COVID-19, we feel it is best to be totally transparent with our planning process. We are closely monitoring the news regarding restrictions on travel and large gatherings and also following the World Health Organization's advice. It takes about 9-12 months of planning for our developers’ meetings and given we do not know the situation in September, we are moving forward with the hope that it will be safe to host our event."

Nick Desaulniers has written up "Off by Two", a programming 'war story' about investigating a bug when building the Linux kernel with Clang.
