A white paragraph.
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.

As always, we will start with the official news from Symfony.
Highlight -> “This week, Symfony 6.2 was released after having worked on it for six months to add lots of nice new features . Meanwhile, Symfony 4.4.49 (the last one of this branch), 5.4.16, 6.0.16 and 6.1.8 maintenance versions were released. Lastly, the SymfonyWorld Online 2022 conference will take place next week with a schedule packed with interesting talks.“
SymfonyWorld Online is taking place the 8th and 9th.
SymfonyCasts continues its patterns and NetGen courses:
24daysindecember.net will have 24 great articles this month. I think this one by Edward Barnard is quite thoughtful.

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 @firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
