To celebrate this milestone I thought I'd share the story of how this package came about, how it's grown, and how I couldn't have reached this milestone without the PHP community's help.
I designed and 3D-printed a simple, custom-sized remote control holder to keep my coffee table organized. It holds my:
- Aeotec Z-Wave Minimote
- Roku 3 Remote
- Xfinity Remote
- Vizio TV Remote
- Wiimote Controller

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.

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.
I was playing Tetris over the weekend when I realized it's a great metaphor for managing technical debt.
Home Assistant uses the open-zwave library to control Z-Wave home automation devices like light switches and door sensors. Unfortunately, this library's last release (1.5) was back in August 2016 and doesn't include configurations for many Z-Wave devices I use (like the Linear NGDZ00-4 Garage Door).
