Chandler Carruth leads the C++ platform team and LLVM team at Google. He is also an active contributor to the LLVM and Clang open source projects, and speaks at various C++ events where he tries to help spread knowledge about C++, compilers, tools, and optimization. Previously, he worked on several components of Googles distributed build system. He received his M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science from Wake Forest University, but disavows all knowledge of the contents of his Masters thesis. He can usually found coding with the aid of Cherry Coke Zero in the daytime and pontificating over a single malt scotch in the evening.
