Did you know that one of the biggest PHP sites on the internet, which serves over a billion unique visitors per month, isn't using PHP at all? 18 months ago, Facebook switched 100% of its production servers from a PHP to C++ compiler to our own virtual machine, HHVM. Since then, HHVM has gotten a further 2x faster, and now supports a huge number of PHP frameworks and extensions out of the box, including Drupal 8!
This talk will go through:
- Our current capabilities (frameworks and extensions)
- How we differ from standard php
- Getting HHVM up and running
- The exciting additional features available only in HHVM (spoiler, there’s lots)
- Log in to post comments
