Room: The Theater
Time: 10:00am - 11:00am

Last year, 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.

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)
