Phalanger is an open source tools that allows PHP to be compiled down to the .Net CLR. The value of this might not seem immediately obvious but there are real world use cases for how this can be used.

This unlikely marriage of technologies combines the power of both languages and opens new opportunities to developers. The aim of this talk is to give an account of Jadu’s involvement with the Phalanger project and describe our experiences along the way. How and why should an enterprise content management company use Phalanger? What benefits does it bring? How do developers find working with Phalanger?
