Like some young men, my father was a big influencer on my career path. I started with web design, but quickly realized without logic my projects would essentially be useless. A few months later I was writing basic PHP and cutting up WordPress themes on a regular basis.
Today, 6 years later, quite comfortable with PHP but feel like as though it’s getting a bum deal being a dynamic language an all. With projects like HHVM chugging away, I’m looking for other ways to bridge the gap between PHP and C.
Having never written any C before, I quickly realized it was quite needy. I decided to try out BinaryPHP, it quickly converts your PHP into source and compiles an executable for you.
For those who are curious, you can grab all sources from github.
