Facebook releases 'Hack'

Just in case you did not know this, Facebook Inc (possibly last sunday) has released a new php based programming language that is supposed to be compiled into dynamic bytecode and run on HHVM.

Facebook's own thoughts: … -for-hhvm/

The Language:

My Opinion: This is useless. PHP is absolutely fine for most of the current requirements. True, overcoming day to day debugging problems highlighted there is tricky but its not worth going for hack.

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

I thought those evils only use people.

Production means the servers used to interact with the users.
