Amazing video. I wonder if “HipHop for PHP” will be available outside the Facebook network. PHP is such an easy language to program and combined with the [speed] of C++, I’d love to have that capability.
Edit: The end of the video answered my question above.
Visit – http://www.facebook.com/opensource to take advantage of HipHop for PHP and all the other opensource software Facebook has developed and shared. Thank you Facebook!!!
Great Video – you know you are a nerd when you get to the end of a datacenter video and are disappointed there isn’t more [and didn't even realize that 40 minutes had passed.]
Would you guys kindly remove my post above.?
I respectfully left a helpful and to the point post and, for some reason, you guys felt it necessary to rudely remove my URL [link back to my website] from the post.
I find this extremely unprofessional. Thank you….
