Our team, Dynamic Tools, is hiring in Munich, Germany.
We need a Linux kernel dev (preferably, but optional; relocation is possible). The position is related to bug finding tools for kernel: KernelAddressSanitizer (https://goo.gl/vb892T), KernelThreadSanitizer (https://github.com/google/ktsan/wiki), fuzzers (https://github.com/google/syzkaller/wiki/Found-Bugs). You will be finding "interesting" bugs like this one http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2015/10/01/8

Besides that our team is working on user-space tools (http://clang.llvm.org/docs/AddressSanitizer.html), mitigation techniques (CFI, SafeStack), etc. We work closely with compiler, kernel, security teams, Java/Go/Android teams.

If you are interested, drop me a email to dvyukov at-you-know-where.
And if you know engineers who might be interested, please forward.

This is exciting. Particularly that the major browser vendors all appear to be on board, unlike with PNaCl, so it can actually become a non-Chrome-only thing.
tl;dr I'm burying the lede with context and catch-up material first, so impatient or already-clued-in readers should skip to below the videos for today's big news. Or just read Luke Wagner's blog post right now. My Fluent 2015 “ECMAScript Harmony: Rise of the Compilers” talk given on April 21st: ...

There's a new Go REPL in town. llgoi is based on the llgo Go frontend for LLVM, and incrementally compiles using LLVM's JIT.

Weather report on bom.gov.au says "Max 41C, Now 43.2C". I've had enough of summer.

A while ago the Go bindings for LLVM were adopted into the LLVM tree. At the time, godoc.org could not display the bindings docs because it did not support SVN; now it does.
package llvm. import "llvm.org/llvm/bindings/go/llvm". Index ¶. Constants; func DefaultTargetTriple() (triple string); func InitializeAllAsmParsers(); func InitializeAllAsmPrinters(); func InitializeAllTargetInfos(); func InitializeAllTargetMCs(); func InitializeAllTargets() ...

Well located near the main train station, and walking distance to the city centre. Friendly staff, decent room, great breakfast selection. The room was small but functional, clean and quiet.
