✅ Symfony Station Communiqué — 26 April, 2024. A look at Symfony, Drupal, PHP, Cybersecurity, and Fediverse news!

This communiqué originally appeared on Symfony Station.

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. That necessitates an opinionated Butlerian jihad against big tech as well as evangelizing for open-source and the Fediverse. We also cover the cybersecurity world.

There's good content in all of our categories, so please take your time and enjoy the items most relevant and valuable to you. This is why we publish on Fridays. So you can savor it over your weekend.

Or jump straight to your favorite section via our website.

Once again, thanks go out to Javier Eguiluz and Symfony for sharing our communiqué in their Week of Symfony.

My opinions will be in bold. And will often involve cursing. Because humans.


As always, we will start with the official news from Symfony.

Highlight -> "This week, Symfony continued adding compatibility with the upcoming PHP 8.4 version and also focused on tweaking and polishing the new features of the upcoming Symfony 7.1 version. Meanwhile, we published more information about some of the talks that will be part of the SymfonyOnline June 2024 conference."

Featured Item

This week I am featuring my latest article because I want you to help out SymfonyCasts' Ryan Weaver. I start with:

"Symfony is unbeatable when it comes to building complex and scalable web applications. Be they sites, services, an API, or Spotify. It's a fantastic weapon in your PHP programming skills arsenal. So, breakout you laptop and put your thinking helmet on. This is the way to learn modern Symfony and slay your PHP space demons."

Lucky like a 7 - Seven SymfonyCasts Courses to Master Symfony 7

Please read this and seriously consider my main call to action for Ryan and his family.

Biden signs TikTok ‘ban’ bill into law, starting the clock for ByteDance to divest it

I am sure he knows this will likely be thrown out by the courts (it singles out TikTok vs. being a privacy bill). The administration may not even defend it in the courts. He did so to get the c^nts in the House to pass aid for Ukraine. And unfortunately, Israel.
