Welcome to this week's Symfony Station Communiqué. It's your review of the essential news in the Symfony and PHP development communities with a focus on protecting democracy. We also cover the cybersecurity world and the Fediverse. There are a good many Symfony pieces this week. Keep up the good work peeps.
Please take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you.
My opinions will be in bold.
Many of the items we curate are on Medium. I recommend investing in a membership, as you can access everything you want to read. It’s a small investment in boosting your career. As you may have noticed, non-members can only access a limited number of articles per month.

As always, we will start with the official news from Symfony. Highlight -> “This week, Symfony development activity focused on fixing bugs on stable branches. Meanwhile, the upcoming Symfony 6.3 version improved the Bootstrap 5 form theme and switched to a faster hashing algorithm. Lastly, the SymfonyLive Paris 2023 conference published its entire schedule.“
SymfonyCasts continued its API Platform course.

For this example, I’ll compare WordPress with React and Vue, because if you didn’t look at the data, you’d think everyone was building with the JS frameworks, right? Absolutely wrong.
