Very nice talk informative and cool :)

A really interesting talk on writing your own compiler, and a deeper look at how AOT compilers work, with a glimpse of how that differs to JIT.

Maybe I should try writing my own compiler...

Fascinating talk. I've always wanted to go deeper into how PHP works under the hood and this was the perfect introduction to that

Despite, as Juozas said, it being quite useless it was very interesting to get an idea of PHP internals. My only gripe was that I had the impression that we'd be going down to machine code (i.e. x86) but I suppose thats a lot to ask of the time slot!

From point 1, Juozas said what he built was rather useless but by sharing the story of what he learnt in building his own interpreter, it brought in an appreciation of what is happening underneath the PHP code.

The delivery pace was spot on and the code colouring in the examples really helped.

Went into the talk not knowing much about compilers, left understanding way more. Thanks.

A really interesting talk on a fascinating topic that was thoroughly informative.

I didn't learn much new stuff here (I didn't expect to), but it was informative and good key points for those who are unfamiliar with the process. Amusing too :) nice

Really good talk, both funny and informative. Compressed the useful parts of a full university module into a short and much friendlier presentation!
