Memory Management for PHP


This project will work on the development of high performance memory management for HHVM, Facebook's PHP implementation.

The project follows two successful ANU honours projects with HHVM (2014 and 2015), each working closely with the Facebook development team, and builds on ANU's international leadership in garbage collection algorithm design and implementation.

One of the principal challenges will be in the efficient integration of explicitly managed and automatically managed heaps, both of which are essential to the operation of PHP.
