What’s New in LLVM

The LLVM compiler framework has gone from being a technological curiosity to a vital piece of the modern software landscape. It is the engine behind the Clang compiler, as well as the compilers for the Rust and Swift languages, and provides a powerful toolkit for creating new languages. It is also...

What is LLVM? The Power Behind Swift, Rust, Clang, and More

LLVM makes it easier to not only create new languages, but to enhance the development of existing ones. It provides tools for automating many of the most thankless parts of the task of language creation: creating a compiler, porting the outputted code to multiple platforms and architectures, and...

An Intro to Compilers

A compiler is just a program that translates other programs. Traditional compilers translate source code into executable machine code that your computer understands. (Some compilers translate source code into another programming language. These compilers are called source-to-source translators or...

LLVM-Powered Pocl Puts Parallel Processing on Multiple Hardware Platforms

Open source implementation of OpenCL automatically deploys code across numerous platforms, speeding machine learning and other jobs. LLVM, the open source compiler framework that powers everything from Mozilla’s Rust language to Apple’s Swift, emerges in yet another significant role: an enabler of...

MIT-Stanford Project Uses LLVM to Break Big Data Bottlenecks

Written in Rust, Weld can provide orders-of-magnitude speedups to Spark and TensorFlow. The more cores you can use, the better -- especially with big data. But the easier a big data framework is to work with, the harder it is for the resulting pipelines, such as TensorFlow plus Apache Spark, to run...
