[News] Facebook Helps Improve Free Software

Hash: SHA1

Facebook rewrites PHP runtime

,----[ Quote ]
| A week ago, I let ya'll know that the core 
| PHP team had been brought to Facebook's 
| main campus. That team were forced to sign 
| NDA's, and taken to a very quiet, secluded 
| meeting room where some cool new Facebook-
| backed open source project was described.


HipHop for PHP: Move Fast

,----[ Quote ]
| HipHop for PHP isn't technically a compiler 
| itself. Rather it is a source code 
| transformer. HipHop programmatically 
| transforms your PHP source code into highly 
| optimized C++ and then uses g++ to compile 
| it. HipHop executes the source code in a 
| semantically equivalent manner and 
| sacrifices some rarely used features - such 
| as eval() - in exchange for improved 
| performance. HipHop includes a code 
| transformer, a reimplementation of PHP's 
| runtime system, and a rewrite of many 
| common PHP Extensions to take advantage of 
| these performance optimizations.


New Terms for Advertising Providers on Facebook Platform

| Our intention is to facilitate an ecosystem 
| that upholds the user experience and 
| continues to set the foundation for a 
| platform that delivers substantial long-
| term opportunities for building or 
| expanding a business.



Building on our Commitment to Open Source Software

,----[ Quote ]
| Thrift, Hive, and Cassandra join about 20
| different technologies we've released as open
| source including Scribe, Tornado, a new
| JavaScript Connect library, and Three20 for
| iPhone development. We're excited to continue
| working on great open source projects and to
| support the ASF with funding, source code, and
| developers. There's plenty more to come.


Zuckerberg employee wears penguin outfit to work

| OK, who dressed as Mark Zuckerberg for
| Halloween? Click it for full size. Thatâs
| the real Zuckerberg at left in this photo
| being sent around the Internets, taking an
| important meeting at Facebook with an
| employee whose passion for Linux led him to
| dress as Tux the penguin on the day before
| Halloween.



Ballmer Still Searching for an Answer to Google

,----[ Quote ]
| "Forty percent of servers run Windows, 60 percent run Linux," he said. "How
| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."
