Media sprint in Zurich
We had a very productive sprint about a week ago in Zurich were we've worked on various core and contrib issues (see below of details). Sprint was organized by MD-Systems. They did their best to bring everyone togehter and made sure that we felt comfortable and welocome. Thank you so much (special thanks go to @miro_dieteker and @Berdir)!
If you came this far you probably liked this video just as much as I did :). You should really consider coming to Portorož in May to attend DC Alpe-Adria. We will have 2 days of great sessions, BoFs and sprints + 2 more day of extended sprints where we're going to focus on D8 and making it rock!
Portorož is also a great destination for children and families so you could bring your significant others and/or families with you and extend Drupal camp into an unforgettable vacation.
I've been following HHVM (HipHop Virtual machine) for some time now. Project got a bit more of my attention about a year ago, after session at FOSDEM 2013 by Sara Golemon. PHP has been criticized for quite a lot of it's characteristics, performance definitely being one of those. HHVM seemed to be very promising about fixing it and that's why it got my attention in the first place. Immediately after last year's FOSDEM I tried it with Drupal, but my attempt unfortunately failed miserably. HHVM was simply not yet ready for that.
