LLVM receives first ever SIGPLAN Software Systems Award

Today the ACM announced that Chris Lattner and the LLVM Project are the recipient of the Programming Languages Software Award.

This award recognizes the impact that LLVM has had on the compiler research community, which can be seen in the large number of research publications using LLVM and the number of compiler courses that are using LLVM to teach compiler construction and optimization techniques. As part of this award, the ACM is donating $2500 to the LLVM project.
