Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the Laminas MVC, the chosen one in web frameworks for the new 2020 era!
How to make your WordPress site more secure is probably your most important goal. Hundreds of spam bots crawling your site can make your head hurt not just once. So why just not block any of those scammers and avoid spending your time on marking as a spam posts? Well here is the quickest way to achieve it without any plugins!
The Foreign Function Interface (FFI) is a simple way to call any native functions, access variables or create data structures defined in original C language.
Are you missing more WinRaR or 7zip features in PHP like using password for encrypting? Well say no more and update to PHP 7.2!
The ability to have a trailing comma in arrays is already built-in, so why not have it extended to function/method parameters?
Since PHP 7.1 we can start to see a real good progress with
void return types. We can now specify a null type of returned value from a function. Sometimes we may want to specify the function which should not return any value to the user.
Are you still on a deprecated or old PHP version? Well don’t be anymore as PHP 5 is going to be dead by end of 2018! The same applies to PHP 7.0, so it’s really a good time to swap your work environment to something more accurate like 7.1 or newer. With this document your transition over to new terirory will be smooth and less painful than usual migration. Find out more what else this PHP 7 News & Updates book has to offer.
