SOC Faculty Receive Google Open Source Peer Award

February 15, 2018

John Regehr, Eric Eide, and Yang Chen (PhD ’14), were selected to receive a Google Open Source Peer Bonus, an award that recognizes “exceptional contributions to open source.”

The team was selected for this award because of their work on C-Reduce, a tool for shrinking C/C++ programs.

C-Reduce takes a large C, C++, or OpenCL file that has a property of interest (such as triggering a compiler bug) and automatically produces a much smaller C/C++ file that has the same property. It is intended for use by people who discover and report bugs in compilers and other tools that process source code. It is heavily used by people in the field.
