Raising Next Generation of LLVM Developers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The LLVM project is a more than decade old. It thrives because of its great 
development community. A constant source of fresh blood in the form of manpower 
and ideas are students. 

There are a lot of challenges in order to help newcomers become more productive 
or better integrated. Getting started, time to first bugfix, time to first accepted patch and time to commit rights are dependent on student's excellence but on the guidance and mentoring, too. Keeping the students around after completing their tasks is often one of the major challenges in mentor's career. 

I'd like to use this BoF to share experience when working with students. I'd like to discuss current issues, challenges and opportunities when working and raising the next generation of LLVM developers.
