This is great. Microsoft may or may not have done a good job of providing valuable information to users of Chrome. Except users of Chrome can't view the video so what's the point? To convince someone using IE to not use Chrome. Do they hope that that using Chrome will switch to IE because they can't view the video? No, those users will simply disregard the video as typical Microsoft propaganda attempting to scare users into using Microsoft products.

Travel and training budgets have been completely wiped out where I work. This means the only way I can attend anything is if it's free and local or out of my own pocket.

LLVM 2.0 is done! Download it here: http://llvm.org/releases/ or view the release notes: http://llvm.org/releases/2.0/docs/ReleaseNotes.ht
LLVM 2.0 is a great release in many ways. It includes a wide range of new features, new optimizations, better codegen, and new targets. We were also able to signficantly revise several core aspects of the LLVM IR and design (such as the type system and bytecode format) based on lessons learned in the LLVM 1.x series."
