platform.shPHP 8.0 feature focus: <span>Language tightenings</span> (22.10.2020, 00:00 UTC)
In our last chapter we went over several smaller feature improvements to PHP. Today, we’ll cover several minor language changes that make PHP safer, but may trip up some older code. There’s been a very steady trend in PHP over the last several years toward making the language tighter. That means more edge cases that are “undefined behavior that kinda silently works most of the time” turn into explicit warnings or errors, behavior that was documented but totally illogical gets adjusted to be more logical, and so on.

platform.shPHP 8.0 feature focus: <span>quality of life improvements</span> (14.10.2020, 00:00 UTC)
Our last article looked at a new way to make null values nicer to work with. PHP 8.0 has a lot of such features that make everyday coding more fun, but there are too many of them to give them all their own articles. So today we’ll cover a grab bag of changes and improvements that aren’t web-shattering but should make working with PHP overall more pleasant. New string functions PHP has a huge array of string functions (sorry, too easy), from the very useful to the rather obscure.

platform.shPHP 8.0 feature focus: <span>nullsafe methods</span> (8.10.2020, 00:00 UTC)
Last week we used Weak Maps to solve one edge case. Today, we simplify the most common and annoying edge case: That of nothingness. Let’s be honest, null values suck. They’ve been called the billion dollar mistake, but programmers in most languages still have to deal with it. (Except for those working in Rust.) They especially suck when you have a variable that could be an object or null. If it’s an object, presumably you know it’s type and what it can do; if it’s null, you can’t do much of anything with it.
