What Difference Does the ‘Core’ Make?

Last week we made a second appearance on Microsoft’s Channel 9 show “On .NET” to give an update on the progress we have been making with Peachpie compiler. As discussed in the livecast, we were quite interested in examining the performance differences of ASP.NET versus ASP.NET Core.

Running PHP on Microsoft Azure with Peachpie

As announced in the last blog post, there has been some major progress in the development of the Peachpie platform over the last couple of weeks. Peachpie is now capable of running compiled PHP applications on IIS and on the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Microbenchmarking Method Calling: Peachpie crushes PHP by using Call Sites

We have previously microbenchmarked the computation of Pi in PHP 5.6 and 7 versus Peachpie, as well as its predecessor Phalanger. With the progress we made in Peachpie, we are now able to measure how quickly it calls instance methods compared to regular PHP. This article summarizes the results of this benchmark.

Peachpie’s Debut: Running PHP in .NET

Last week we taught Peachpie to compute simple arithmetic operations and demonstrated this ability on the Leibniz formula for Pi. We published a first microbenchmark, where we compared how quickly the irrational number was calculated with Peachpie compared to PHP 5.6 and 7, as well as with Phalanger. The results for this particular benchmark were surprisingly favorable for Peachpie. Since then, we have worked hard on the option of producing an executable file and we finally managed to achieve this feat.

Computing Pi with Peachpie

We have been working hard to produce something tangible and/or executable to demonstrate some of the usecases, features, and benefits of Peachpie. In honor of Pi Day last week, it seemed like a good idea to produce the first demo of the PHP compiler to .NET by allowing it to compute Pi.
