Facebook Releases the Hack Programming Language
March 21, 2014 @ 09:03:10

Yesterday marked a major point in the evolution of PHP and its ecosystem. Facebook released their version of PHP, Hack, based on the work they've been doing with the HHVM (HipHop Virtual Machine) and compiler.

Hack is a programming language for HHVM that interoperates seamlessly with PHP. Hack reconciles the fast development cycle of PHP with the discipline provided by static typing, while adding many features commonly found in other modern programming languages. Hack provides instantaneous type checking via a local server that watches the filesystem. It typically runs in less than 200 milliseconds, making it easy to integrate into your development workflow without introducing a noticeable delay.

One of the key features is that it mixes well with PHP and will feel very familiar for those already used to using PHP. The homepage for the language includes all the details you'll need to get started with it, including an interactive tutorial walking you through some of the basics. Some of the features included in the language are things like type annotations, generics, native collections and lambdas. You can find out more in their official announcement.

Madison PHP Conference 2013 Announced
October 01, 2013 @ 09:09:32

The Madison PHP user group has announced a conference they're putting on in Madison, Wisconsin November 16th - the Madison PHP Conference:

One day, two tracks, loads of fun. Join us for a one day, two track conference that focuses on PHP and related web technologies. This event is organized by Madison PHP and is designed to offer something to attendees at all skill levels. It will be a day of networking, learning, sharing, and great fun! We've carefully crafted two distinct tracks but you're not locked into just one. Attend any talk from any track.

The two tracks will cover both ends of the learning scale - a Professional track for those seasoned PHP developers and a Foundations track for those new to PHP. If you're interested in speaking at this year's event, you can still submit a proposal to their call for papers. If you're just wanting to attend, you can pick up tickets at a discounted "Blind Bird" rate until October 15th, the day before the schedule will be announced. You can also follow them on Facebook for the latest news.
