Symfony achieves 100% PHP7 compatibility PHP7, the new version of the programming language Symfony is built with, will be released at the end of the year. The recent release of its third beta has brought us another step closer to the final stable release. During these last past months, we've been working very hard to achieve full PHP7 compatibility. This effort accelerated during the past weeks and we're glad to announce that all Symfony maintained branches are now 100% compatible with PHP7. Our PHP7 compatibility journey started on February 2015, when Nicolas Grekas added php: nightly to the list of tested PHP engines on Travis CI (see commit). After that, a lot of pull requests followed to fix PHP7 compatibility for Symfony components.

Untangling MVC with CodeIgniter When I first started programming the only type of code I wrote was procedural.

Tonic: The RESTful Web App PHP Micro-Framework Tonic is an open source less is more, RESTful Web application development PHP library designed to do things "the right way", where resources are king and the library gets out of the way and leaves the developer to get on with it. To understand Tonic, you need to get the Web, so forget everything you know for a minute and think about how the Web really works, it's not about HTML pages, it's about resources: Everything useful is a resource, not a file, not a CGI script, a resource, an abstract concept of something useful that the client wants to grab hold of.

Learn to Program, by Chris Pine A Place to Start for the Future Programmer I guess this all began back in 2002.
