1st International Conference on Open Source Software Computing (OSSCOM 2015) Toward Open-source Compilers in a Cloud-based Environment: The Need and Current Challenges Presenting Author: Taher Ahmed Ghaleb Contact: [email protected] Index 2 Introduction Related work The required framework Discussion Prospective features Target stakeholders Potential challenges Conclusion Introduction 3 Problems of Conventional Compilers Being installed Platform independent Compatibility Portability Updates Being closed-source Extensibility Creating new languages. Bug fixing. Related work 4 Open-Source Compilers Amsterdam Compiler Kit (ACK), 1983 Open64 and GNU Compiler Collection Polyglot, JastAdd, abc, etc. Online repositories for Open-Source Programs GitHub, SourceForge, CodePlex, etc. Cloud-based Compilers Cloud compiler fro C/C++ . Browser-based IDE . Online compilers: CompileOnline, Ideone, CodeChef, etc. The Required Framework 5 The Required Framework (2) 6 Portal & Dashboard Layer Project Management Layer Collaboration Layer Web-based Interface Layer Compilation Layer Prospective Features Prospective Features 7 Accessibility Portability Extensibility Self-updated Efficient Processing Code Sharing Collaborative & Real-time Team-work Programming Target Stakeholders 8 Academic Institutions Developers Researchers Potential Challenges 9 File System Networking APIs GUI-based Programs Security Issues Conclusion and Future Work 10 A combination of two aspects (Open-source & Cloud) computing for compilers. Future recommendations: Real-world implementation and deployment. Further investigation of the features provided by current cloud-based compilers. Use of the shelf (existing open-source compilers and cloud- based repositories and hosting providers). References 11  M. S.Andreasen, H. V.Nielsen, S.
