Adve and Lattner Featured in Wired Article on LLVM
CS Professor Vikram Adve and CS alumnus Chris Lattner (MS CS ’02, CS PhD ’05) were featured in an article in Wired in a story on the LLVM compiler infrastructure.
LLVM was released to the public in October 2003 as an open source compiler infrastructure. In less than ten years, and as the Wired article indicates, LLVM has had a major impact on the computing industry across platforms.
In the article, author Cade Metz said, "The hope is that LLVM will usher in a new era of software development where applications can freely move from machine to machine and even from processor to processor."
Adve, Lattner, and Apple Inc. software engineer Evan Cheng recently received the ACM Software System Award for their work with LLVM.
