Welcome to this week's Symfony Station Communiqué. It's your weekly review of the essential news in the Symfony and PHP development communities. We also cover the cybersecurity world in detail this week. Because privacy and cuntitry.
Take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you.
My opinions will be in bold. Be forewarned, I will be doing some rage posting.
Many of the items we curate are on Medium. I recommend investing in membership as you can access everything you want to read. It’s a small investment in boosting your career. As may have noticed non-members can only access a limited number of articles per month.
