An Introduction to the Intel® IoT Developer Kit

Hardware sensors and actuators are the eyes and ears of technology: temperature, location, vibration, rotation, etc. Without sensors and actuators, there is no IoT.

Making the Dead Rise, and Other Impossible Tasks

My current job is to lead our company's work on dynamic server languages, such as performance optimization and feature enabling. Besides PHP and HHVM, we want to improve Python. There is a huge amount of Python code in use out there, for example running OpenStack, Swift, DropBox and many others. What I didn't realize when I took the job was that much of this use is in a "dead" language.

My Reality Moment. Why Did I Ever Agree to Do This?

When I first took this job of leading our scripting languages area, the Reality Moment struck when I had my first real look at the challenges of dynamic languages. For example, if you compare two strings in a program, we have some new instructions in the processor which can make these go very fast. But unfortunately, if you compare two strings in PHP, you first need to determine if the strings...

PHP - the right tool for the job?

Today there is a profusion of computer languages targeted at different activities. It's important to choose the right one. A lot of programmers love Python because it's so fast to implement stuff, but it can be a pain to use to create a simple website. PHP is the most popular choice for implementing active content in a website. And it's rather obvious once you dig into it. As you create your web...

PGO: Let It Go (PHP)

We can hope that companies like Intel® will come along with a faster processor. (And this does tend to happen every year). Or we can improve our compilers to produce better machine code. Or we can analyze our own code and change it to run more optimally. For PHP, we do all three: We partner with the processor architects to improve the way they execute PHP; we look for changes we can make to the...
