“I love this book! It helped me create my own Awesome-to-PHP compiler. It’s not a full featured compiler yet but I had a lot of fun coding it and I learned a LOT.”

“I never had a chance to study language internals at university, and while very interested, I found their inner workings intimidating.

Highly recommended.”
