Did you know that one of the biggest PHP sites on the internet isn’t running PHP? Did you know that HHVM (HipHop Virtual Machine) clocks in at anywhere between 2x and 10x faster than standard PHP with an Opcode Cache? Come take a look at “The other PHP engine”, how to get a server up and running, what pitfalls to watch out for in migrating over, and what exciting extras are waiting.
