Talk: JIT Compilers
How does this work under the hood? Emiel Bruijntjes gives a crash course 'how to write your own compiler' in which the whole process from writing a tokenizer and a parser, building an abstract syntax tree up to generating machine instructions is being explained. These concepts are demonstrated with a simple compiler that turns Smarty/Twig template files into native machine instructions.
