Geoff Reedy informs on the current status of a LLVM backend for the Scala compiler project he’s working on, detailing on its design and implementation.
Geoff Reedy is a self-confessed programming languages geek from Albuquerque, NM. He cut his teeth with Perl and C, moved on to Python, then saw the light of strong static typing and FP in Scala, Haskell, OCaml (but he still likes Python sometimes). He holds equal interest in programming language theory, design and implementation. His current big project is an LLVM backend for the Scala compiler.
Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web. Strange Loop was created in 2009 by software developer Alex Miller and is now run by a team of St. Louis-based friends and developers under Strange Loop LLC, a for-profit but not particularly profitable venture.
