What is a Minimum Viable Product?

Sunny Jul 12, 2018

If you start out with an idea next step you really want to know first is what is Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Wondering why? Because your first goal is to prove the product you design is the product your customers desire. Otherwise, there are no reasons to build for years an idea that is unclaimed to users.

Too many developers making startups with an idea of the product, they believe customers need. Spending months, even years, polishing their own product without showing it to an audience. And they fail. And it is a fair story because they don’t speak to their own audience to determinate ...

An Introduction to HHVM

Sunny Aug 15, 2013

HHVM (HipHop Virtual Machine) converts PHP code into a high-level bytecode (commonly known as an intermediate language). This bytecode is then translated into x64 machine code dynamically at runtime by a just-in-time (JIT) compiler.
