All about Hack in 15 minutes

Why you should consider Hack over PHP

Hack is a new programming language from Facebook. It is the natural evolution of PHP. This talk will cover some of the problems with PHP, the benefits of a compiled and statically typed language and then introduce Hack and HHVM as a solution. Half way into the talk I will give a crash course in Hack and explain its perks and syntactic sugar. At the end I'll give some advice on how and where to get started testing Hack.
