How to Become a HipHop Fan
Yesterday Facebook announced the release of "HipHop for PHP". HipHop translates classic PHP code over to C++ for faster execution times with less CPU use.
PHP has become popular because it's easy to learn: You can start with adding some PHP calls into existing HTML for first success. Thus for companies like Facebook it's far easier to find good PHP programmers.
On the down-side PHP lacks in performance as it interprets the whole code on the fly. HipHop translates PHP into C++ which directly runs as an application on the server.
