I create websites, applications and e-commerce solutions at Unleashed Technologies. When I'm not solving tough problems for clients, you can find me speaking at conferences all around the world. In my free time, I also like to tinker with Arduino and Android; I've helped root the enTourage eDGe and have a few sound effect widgets available on Google Play.
PHP 7.2 is slated for release in November 2017, but you don't have to wait until then to start testing your applications! We can easily use Docker to test against the latest pre-release versions of 7.2.
PHP 7.2 Pre-Release Images
I've created a PHP 7.2 pre-release image on Docker Hub: https://hub.docker.com/r/colinodell/php-7.2/.
I recently needed the ability to perform a
RIGHT JOIN in a Symfony project. While Doctrine's DBAL library seems to support this, the ORM's QueryBuilder does not. Unfortunately, the suggested workaround of inverting the query wouldn't work in my situation. I also didn't feel like rewriting the query into DQL, so I ultimately hacked in my own support by duplicating the
LEFT JOIN functionality. I figured I'd share my patch in case it helps others facing a similar issue.
Open-source development is more than big new features and major releases. Small contributions are just as important to the success of open-source projects! Any improvement, no matter how small, can help both the project and other developers.
