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.

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.

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.

Introducing Peachpie – the PHP compiler for .NET Part II

In Part II, we would like to explain in what ways Peachpie will outperform Phalanger and to what overall benefits we expect this to lead.
