php[architect] — December 2015

Not to steal Eli’s thunder, but this has year has been filled with many milestones for the PHP community. It’s a theme that echoed throughout php[world], our conference that just wrapped up. If you are a PHP developer, you can learn a lot from the Drupal, WordPress, Magento, and other applications. Likewise, venturing outside your comfort zone in Symfony, Laravel, or Zend Framework will expose you to new ideas, new solutions to similar problems, and—most importantly—new friends and collaborators. If you’re beginning to think about resolutions for the new year, I challenge you to attend new meetups near you. Go to that Laravel meetup, check out the WordPress one, or even head over to the JavaScript one near you!
