Hi everyone, I'm new to the kotlin compiler (but not new to kotlin or compilers), are there any resources you would recommend other than the source for getting started with compiler/compiler plugin development? Thanks!

In LW we will present the progress we made with compiler-plugins and the meta programming library
Arrow-Meta
. Besides that it really depends what your looking for. May I ask in what direction you want to manipulate the compiler?

nice, interested to see that
and I want to have a go with implementing pattern matching
which I've heard you guys might be working on already?

I was thinking something scala-style, being able to match properties out of data classes
to start with anyway
I assume someone's working on support for something like this?

Most of the issues we are working on are in public issues 🙂
Stay tuned. Maybe some of your questions will resolve after LW https://twitter.com/raulraja/status/1183855903692472328?s=19
