This is the most interesting thing I've read on hacker news for months. And that's despite its subject matter being way beyond my skill level. I actually understand how a tracing JIT works now.

I agree, I learned a lot from this article. I also really appreciated the linked tutorials on writing a Brain Fuck interpreter and JIT compiler in PyPy/RPython: Part 1 [1] and Part [2]. The simplicity of the example and the good writing cleared the topic up for me immensely.

agreed. This was really good.
