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.
Or jump straight to your favorite section.
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.
