Fun with the Interns: Santiago Fernandez on LLVM Based Optimizer for MSIL

Fun with the Interns: Santiago Fernandez on LLVM Based Optimizer for MSIL

  • Comments 2

A few weeks ago when I was up in Redmond I had the pleasure of interviewing some interns on the .NET team to talk about their experience as an intern at Microsoft and to show off the projects they are working on. In this interview I sit down with Santiago Fernandez, a Developer Intern on the .NET team, and we chat about his internship experience and summer project.

Santiago really likes being close to the metal. So he investigated what it would take to use LLVM in the .NET Native code generator. Here he patiently helps me understand what the heck it's all about! LLVM is a cross platform, open source collection of modular and reusable compiler and tool chain technologies. Santiago shows us how it can be used to optimize MSIL. It's some very cool, geeky stuff. It's also awesome to hear about Santiago's dream to work at Microsoft.

For all those students out there pursuing a career in computer science, you should consider an internship at Microsoft. You can help build real software that helps millions of people! Learn more about the Microsoft internship program here.

Enjoy!
