What an incredible 2018 and 2019 for the PHP community! Part of the PHP Core Team that was working for Zend left. Some of them found excellent companies and they are rocking more than ever, like Nikita at JetBrains. PHP 7.4 is about to be released, and PHP 8 has been branched. Laravel and Symfony have healthy growth. JIT is part of the imminent future, and I/O non-blocking frameworks are getting more often adopted in production.
