by Keith Adams on Feb 26, 2014 |

Keith Adams examines the strengths that made PHP a dominant language in its niche, highlighting Facebook's attempts at remedying its inconsistencies and misfeatures while maintaining its strengths.


Keith Adams is a Virtual Machinist at Facebook. He is one of the initial designers and implementers of HHVM, the open source PHP JIT that runs Facebook's front-end. Through a series of mostly fortunate events, Keith became a founding member of The I-can't-believe-I'm-a-PHP-advocate Club. Before working at Facebook, Keith worked on VMware's virtual machine monitor.
