My history goes back to 2003, when Chris Shiflett launched the phpcommunity.org project. We wanted to provide a hub for the PHP community. We built up a great community on Freenode IRC (we’re in #phpc). Nowadays, @ramsey manages the PHPC accounts & domains and is working to launch a non-profit for the PHP community.

Here's the list of changes in the new #PHP 8.0 alpha
Lots of deprecated functions/methods are now removed. Many existing functions behave differently
These are basically breaking changes for anyone still using any branch older than 7.2
“Version 7 is a fresh, faster new vision for PHP. Don't let old opinions, and critics' disgust for their own code written years ago sway you from giving PHP a try.” — @syntaxseed https://dev.to/syntaxseed/the-state-of-php-today-1n2j
The Abolish Narrow Margins RFC has passed, representing the first major change to the PHP project voting process since 2011. https://wiki.php.net/rfc/abolish-narrow-margins
http://friendsofphp.org has published an open API allowing you to search for and see events for local PHP user groups around the world. They include data from a variety of sources (not just Meetup).
We are happy to announce the release of #yii 2.0.16 https://www.yiiframework.com/news/196/yii-2-0-16-is-released #yii2 #php
“PHP: rfc:jit” https://wiki.php.net/rfc/jit
"Porting Silex web apps to the Slim #PHP Framework, Round 2"
@phpc glad that you ask ;) But seriously, it’s a free and Open Source PHP CMS (https://www.neos.io), for example used to run https://www.1und1.de/ It’s not well known in the America yet, but on the rise here in Europe (we have a Fontawesome icon 😊). And, yeah, full disclosure, I founded it some years ago. But of course, adding the logo only makes sense when people talk about it and know it. So, feel free to add or ignore.
