Annual conference for developers of the GNU Toolchain to be hosted at University of Manchester from the 7th through to 9th September 2018.

The GNU Tools Cauldron is an annual fixture in the calendar of developers of GCC, GDB, binutils and runtimes etc. Having previously been hosted at venues including Google’s California headquarters, Charles University in Prague, University of Cambridge, and in Hebden Bridge as part of the Wuthering Bytes technology festival, this year the University of Manchester will play host.

The conference is free to attend and open to all, with delegates ranging from computer science students and compiler toolchain enthusiasts, right up to world class stoolchain experts and senior engineers representing global technology companies. Talks tend to cover a wide variety of topics, including project status updates, porting to new ISAs and optimisation, to name but a few.

BoF (birds of a feather) sessions are also a regular feature and so far these are planned for C++ Modules and Build Systems, the GNU C Library, and RISC-V. On the Saturday evening there will be a conference dinner at Manchester Art Gallery, providing an excellent opportunity to socialise in informal surroundings and ask speakers those questions that you wish you had earlier in the day.
