This tutorial steps through how to develop an LLVM backend for a modern RISC target (RISC-V). It will be of interest to anyone who hopes to implement a new backend, modify an existing backend, or simply better understand this part of the LLVM infrastructure. It provides a high level introduction to the MC layer, instruction selection, as well as small selection of represenative implementation challenges. No experience with LLVM backends is required, but a basic level of familiarity with LLVM IR would be useful.
