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.

We are back to our normal format and weekly schedule now. Please 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 you may have noticed, non-members can only access a limited number of articles per month.

Also, be sure to join our newsletter list at the bottom of our site’s pages. Joining gets you each week's communiquĂ© in your inbox (a day early).

We have stopped curating on Twitter. It has turned into a full-scale dumpster fire, as we predicted months ago, so we are now on Mastodon at @symfonystation@phpc.social. Follow us there for daily coverage. Consider joining the @phpc.social instance.

Do you own or work for an organization that would be interested in our promotion opportunities? Or supporting our journalistic efforts? If so, please get in touch with us. We’re in our infancy, so it’s extra economical. 😉

More importantly, if you are a Ukrainian company with coding-related products, we can offer free promotion on our Support Ukraine page. Or, if you know of one, get in touch.

Keep coding Symfonistas!
