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.
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 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.
Become a member here! The compensation we receive from your use of this link helps pay for our weekly communiqué.
As always, we will start with the official news from Symfony.
Highlight -> “This week, Symfony 6.1.1 maintenance version was released to fix all the issues reported since the recent Symfony 6.1 stable release. Meanwhile, the upcoming Symfony 6.2 version added a new feature to get the current firewall configuration in a simpler way. Finally, the SymfonyWorld Online 2022 Summer conference will take place next week.“
SymfonyWorld Online 2022 Summer Edition occurred yesterday and today.
If you paid to attend you can catch replays here. If you didn’t pay you should be able to buy access next week.
There wasn’t a standout article this week, but I found the following had some interesting new use cases for PHP. Think IoT, chatbots, voice search, cybersecurity, the cloud, etc.
I am not sure if this was written by AI, or English as a second language.
