The life of a programmer... You get some new fancy Logitech Litra Glow lights for Zoom/recording stuff (, and then you found out it's Windows/OSX only. Luckily, somebody had reversed engineered the protocol into python ( which you then rewrite into Go so you can control it from your own control software for the proprietary Elgato Stream Deck:

Mastodon is like Twitter when it was just us techies and geeks.

Looks at this! The next Xdebug release (3.2) will have an extra "return from function" debugging step, in which you can inspect the return value.

It even works with fluent APIs!

But it does need some support in IDEs, as they need to enable the feature.

I'll be working with Jetbrains and Damjan Cvetko to get this into PhpStorm and the PHP Debug Adapter for Visual Studio Code.

🔎 We're looking for people interested in becoming release manager for PHP 8.2!

🗓️ You need to be able to commit to a 3½ year term, and have good knowledge of PHP and GIT, and preferably C.

I was X years old when I learned that PHP's array_push() does not return the new array, but rather the amount of elements in the array.

Welcome to Xdebug Cloud, a new service by @derickr, the author of @Xdebug

Xdebug Cloud exists to make debugging PHP with Xdebug in more complicated networking set-ups, such as through docker, vagrant, and development machines on cloud services, easier.

Is there API access to this mastodon thing @ramsey? Can't give twitter all the automated fun.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

Not sure if we *need* this, but it's ready to go if we do. Thanks a ton to @derickr for helping me with the wording & content.

And of course @KaraFerguson for reviewing/editing <3

In today's news: I helped some pagans calculate when solstices and equinoxes occur.

I think I should make an RFC to change array to Array in var_export output. What do you think @pollita ?

I’m hanging out on today, in case you need some socialization and want to join me there.
