  • Transcrypt: Anatomy of a Python to JavaScript Compiler

    On the web front end, web development is one size fits all: JavaScript. The Transcrypt Python to JavaScript compiler is a relatively new open source project, aiming at executing Python 3.6 at JavaScript speed, with comparable file sizes. In this article, Jacques de Hooge talks about the requirements in building a transpiler and how Transcrypt is built to meet those demands.

  • Improve Your Node.js App Throughput One Micro-optimization at a Time

    To improve the performance of a Node.js application that involves IO, you need to understand how your CPU cycles are spent and what is preventing higher degrees of parallelism in your application. In this article, Jorge Bay shares his insights on areas that cause throughput degradation and tips on how to boost performance.

  • What the JIT!? Anatomy of the OpenJDK HotSpot VM

    If you've ever wondered what happens when your bytecode executes, join former Oracle G1GC performance-lead Monica Beckwith in her guided tour of just-in-time (JIT) compilation and runtime optimizations in OpenJDK HotSpot VM.

  • Java Bytecode: Bending the Rules

    Throwing checked exceptions without declaration, changing final fields; these kinds of antics would never be tolerated by the Java language. But using Java bytecode these can be done readily. Few developers ever work with Java bytecode directly, but bytecode format is not difficult to understand. In this article Rafael Winterhalter takes us on a tour of Java bytecode & some of its capabilities

  • The OpenJDK Revised Java Memory Model

    The existing Java Memory Model covers a lot in terms of Java language semantic guarantees. In this article we will delve into a few of those semantics, and attempt to communicate the motivation for an update to the existing Java Memory Model

  • JSIL: Challenges Met Compiling CIL into JavaScript

    This article introduces JSIL, a .NET to JavaScript compiler, and contains details on the difficulties encountered while compiling CIL code into cross-browsers JavaScript.

  • C++/CX Performance Pitfalls

    Writing applications in C++/CX is not like writing normal C++ applications. The interoperability between pure C++ code and the Windows Runtime (WinRT) can be surprisingly expensive. In this article based on Sridhar Madhugiri’s video, C++/CX Best Practices, we look at some of the ways to avoid performance problems in Windows 8 development.

  • Learning Modern C++: An Interview with Barbara Moo

    C++ was originally introduced in the 1980s, when coinciding with the rise of object orientated programming, it became one of the primary languages for software development. In the years since C++'s entry, both scripted languages and managed languages have risen in popularity. InfoQ speaks with Barbara Moo, coauthor of C++ Primer Fifth Edition, about C++11 and modern C++ development.

  • The Essence of Google Dart: Building Applications, Snapshots, Isolates

    Google has previewed Dart, a new language with a VM but also a JS compiler. InfoQ looks beyond the grammar at Dart's contributions for building apps: Snapshots, Isolates, Modularity.

  • Joe Duffy on the Future of Concurrency and Parallelism

    Joe Duffy, author of Concurrent Programming on Windows, talks about the future of concurrency and parallelism. This interview covers his thoughts on the language designs, libraries, and patterns that are becoming increasing important in modern programming.

  • Book on Leveraging Domain-Specific Languages by Martin Fowler with Rebecca Parsons

    In their new book Martin Fowler and Rebecca J. Parsons address the topic of Domain-Specific Languages. “Domain-Specific Languages” does not only address the concepts behind DSLs, but also tries to explain the subject in a pragmatic manner using examples in Java, C# and other languages.The book contains different patterns that reveal best practices in designing DSLs.

  • No Callbacks Required: StratifiedJS Returns Sequential Programming to Javascript

    StratifiedJS is a superset of Javascript that adds concurrency constructs and makes callback hell a thing of the past. How? InfoQ talked to Alexander Fritze, of Onilabs, to find out.
