Welcome to this week's Symfony Station Communiqué. It's your review of the essential news in the Symfony and PHP development communities focusing on protecting democracy. We also cover the cybersecurity world and the Fediverse.
There is plenty of good content in each category this week, so please take your time and enjoy the ones most relevant and valuable to you. An uptick in Symfony articles this week is fantastic, including our newest effort, which is decent. ;)

My opinions will be in bold. And will often involve profanity.
A significant proportion of the content we curate is on Medium. I highly recommend investing in a membership to access all the articles you want to read. It's a small investment that can boost your career. As you may have noticed, non-members can only access a limited number of articles per month.

Meanwhile, we continued adding features to the new AssetMapper component. Lastly, we announced a round of lightning talks during the SymfonyOnline June 2023 conference.“
We are tooting our own horn this week with our newest article. It is a follow-on to our article, How Symfony components power Drupal’s drive to new frontiers. We look at the nuts and bolts of four of the components/libraries Drupal uses, plus the Twig templating engine.
