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 an abundance of Symfony items this week et c'est très magnifique.
Please take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you.
Thanks to Javier Eguiluz and Symfony for sharing our latest communiqué in their Week of Symfony. And thanks to our friends at PHP Weekly for featuring our article on Drupal’s path to growth. Along with our newsletter, it’s one you should subscribe to. 😉
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.

As always, we will start with the official news from Symfony. Highlight -> “This week, the upcoming Symfony 6.3 version added support for 103 status code (Early Hints), updated the service container builder to use PHP weak references, and added three new components: Webhook and RemoteEvent and a Scheduler component. Lastly, Symfony announced a new Symfony conference in Berlin (October 5-6, 2023).“
SymfonyCasts continues its second API Platform course, and it covers security.
Stitcher.io is not a fan of how PHP is managed by a large committee and thinks it would be better off with a benevolent dictator.
The problem with benevolent dictators (open source or not) is that they are few and far between, and are likely to devolve into c^nts. Just ask Twitter employees and the doormat citizens of Russia or China. The real solution is more democracy.
