I was curious if anyone is using LLVM extensively or has any experience with it. What was the usecase you used it for? What can it be used for? I'm looking to get some more indepth info about how this can be utilized at more specific usecase scenarios rather that just system wide.

LLVM consists of a C++ compiler and libraries similar to GCC or g++
Unless you'll be programming in that language (and making use of LLVM libraries) there is no special use of it from end user perspective.

Major benefit of LLVM is it's large cross platform library collection (mostly low level) and a cross platform compiler that is an alternative to GCC or MSVC.

LLVM is huge project, it also provides other tools like "clang" which is highly customizable C\C++ code formatter.
You basically crate a .clang file with a ton of custom options on how to format code.
