Github Actions feels like bolting things together like Lego, but not knowing if the pieces actually fit, and you can only see if it looks right by showing everyone. And there's always a piece missing.

What are people using for async DB access in PHP at the moment? Looking at moving a Doctrine-based worker to ReactPHP

I'm genuinely happy to help anyone who wants to start talking at conferences. Please DM me. If I get criticised for spelling something wrong, so be it. But honestly I'd love to help you.

Stop breaking userland. While I love to see PHP improve, it’s dynamic nature (not just dynamic properties) is part of what makes the language so resilient and powerful.

The dead of PHP...

Today @derickr was kind enough to give me a heads-up on a PHP 8.2 RFC currently in voting:

The vote is currently leaning to accepting and this scares me …

Spent the morning implementing an oauth 2 login flow for a CLI app to make things easier down the road.

Now I’m going to eat Chef Boyardee ravioli for lunch.

I’m a professional adult.
