Welcome to this week's Symfony Station Communiqué. It's your review of the essential news in the Symfony and PHP development communities. We also cover the cybersecurity world in detail.
Please take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you.
And enjoy the beginning of a Happy Holiday Season! 🎅🏾 🎄 🕎
Including Kwanzaa. Sorry, there is no official Kwanzaa emoji.
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 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 6.2.2 maintenance version was released. Meanwhile, development activity focused on fixing bugs of stable versions and adding new features for the upcoming Symfony 6.3 version, such as the support of labels in dd() and dump() functions. In addition, the last conference keynote video was published for free so you can watch Fabien introducing two new components for Symfony 6.3.“
Joel Spolsky writes:
The web was built with open protocols. Suppose we all agree on a protocol for blocks.
Any developer that wants to create a new block can conform to this protocol.
Any kind of web-text-editing application can also conform to this protocol.
Then if anyone goes to the trouble of creating a cool “book” or “address” block, we’ll all be able to use it, anywhere.
And we shall dub this protocol, oh I don’t know, the Block Protocol.
He is starting off with a WordPress plugin.
Hopefully, Drupal will come up with a similar module and Symfony will eventually integrate the Block Protocol.

There is no such thing as quiet quitting. It’s a horseshit made up term from management types meaning “not working overtime for free”. The proper term is “disengagement” from a crap job.
