A white paragraph.
Welcome to this week's Symfony Station Communiqué. It's your weekly review of the essential news in the Symfony and PHP development communities. We also cover the cybersecurity world.
Take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you.
As always, thanks to Javier Eguiluz and Symfony for sharing our last communiqué in their Week of Symfony.
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 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 SymfonyWorld Online 2022 Summer Edition conference took place with great success. During the conference, we unveiled ux.symfony.com the new website to discover and learn about Symfony UX. Lastly, we announced the first speakers of SymfonyCon Disneyland Paris 2022 (November 17-18, 2022).“
