Lessons from porting software to RISC-V @ RISE

As the RISC-V architecture continues to gain momentum in the realm of open-source hardware, the challenges of porting software become increasingly apparent. This talk dives into the experiences and insights gained from porting software as part of the RISE (RISC-V Software Ecosystem) initiative. Ludovic, an active participant in the initiative and lead for the Language Runtimes WG, will share firsthand accounts of the hurdles faced, breakthroughs achieved, and the broader implications for the RISC-V community.

Attendees can expect to gain valuable insights into the intricacies of porting software to RISC-V, covering aspects such as compiler optimizations, and architecture-specific testing. Real-world examples will be used to illustrate the practical challenges encountered and the creative solutions devised during the porting process. Furthermore, the talk will highlight the collaborative nature of the RISE Initiative, emphasizing the importance of community engagement and knowledge sharing in building a thriving RISC-V ecosystem.

In summary, this talk aims to provide attendees with a deeper understanding of the nuances involved in porting software to RISC-V. By sharing experiences, lessons, and best practices, the speaker seeks to contribute to the collective knowledge base of the RISC-V community, fostering a collaborative spirit that propels the ecosystem forward into new frontiers.
