Compilers are among programmers' old-hat tools. We use them day-in,
and day-out, but often we don't pay them very much attention. They
take our source code, turn it into (hopefully efficient) executables
and libraries, and, for most programmers, that is where the
relationship ends. But all of that is changing. Today, programmers
need rich and powerful tools to deal with the complexities and
challenges of the modern C++ programming language and its ever larger
and faster-growing code bases.

I'm going to introduce you to a compiler which is changing the way
people think about compilers: Clang. What is Clang? What makes it
different from all the other C++ compilers out there? Why does it
matter? What can you do with Clang? What will you be able to do
because of Clang in the next year, the next lustrum, and the next
decade? I'll dive into all of these questions and more. At the end of
this talk, you will be familiar with Clang, you will want to use it
the next time you write C++ code, and hopefully you will think about
C++, both language and codebases, with a fundamentally different

Chandler Carruth leads the LLVM and Clang teams at Google, building
better compilers, diagnostics, tools, and more. Previously, he worked
on several pieces of Google's distributed build system. He makes guest
appearances helping to maintain a few core C++ libraries across
Google's codebase, and is active in the LLVM and Clang open source
communities. He received his M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science from
Wake Forest University, but disavows all knowledge of the contents of
his Master's thesis. He is regularly found drinking Cherry Coke Zero
in the daytime and pontificating over a single malt scotch in the
