Michael Dryrynda has a post to his site sharing a method for using Laravel Telescope in specific environments. Telescope provides enhanced debugging functionality to Laravel applications for introspection into data about requests, jobs, queues and more. Whilst its primary purpose is as a debugging tool in development, it is also a powerful asset in debugging your production environment. In order to get Telescope, however, I ran in to some stumbling points in my CI environment in GitLab. To work around this, I set out to conditionally load Telescope. I stumbled upon this comment from Mohamed Said, which suggested loading the TelescopeServiceProvider in one of your application's service providers, but doing so was not enough. He goes on to talk about the package auto-discover functionality Telescope uses to load its provider and how this, along with the dont-discover configuration option in Composer's extra section can be used to control its loading. He also includes the code needed to register the provider classes but only in the environments other than "build" and "testing".
In a recent post on their own site, thePHP.cc has shared some of their own perspectives about the recent future of Zend announcement. For those that aren't aware, the company that acquired Zend several years ago - Rogue Wave - announced their decision to discontinue their support of the Zend Framework project. Last week, Zeev Suraski, Matthew Weier O'Phinney, Enrico Zimuel and Dmitry Stogov, all well-known members of the international PHP community, announced that they will leave Zend, which has been part of Rogue Wave since 2015. The stated reason is Rogue Wave's strategic decision to focus on the development of Zend Server. If you read between the lines, this implies that Rogue Wave is not going to continue or support the development of the Zend Engine (the core of PHP responsible for compiling and executing code), their IDE Zend Studio, and Zend Framework. Of course, it is perfectly valid to make money off an Open Source project. This, however, implies at least a moral obligation to give back to said project. Rogue Wave, it seems, will now terminate the symbiotic relationship between PHP and Zend. The author (Stefan Priebsch) talks about "lip service" not being enough when a company wants to make money from customers but aren't willing to help with the development of the underlying software. He also mentions several other Zend-related products that have a bit more quietly gotten the axe over the years since the acquisition. He wonders about the "downsizing" this could cause in the PHP community given ZF's impact and how, despite this being a large setback for the project, he sees its future as promising given the people involved and the projects around it.

Countless blog posts have taught you how to create a portfolio, and some of them are valuable. So why did I write another article featuring tips for creating a portfolio?

WebP, introduced by Google, is an image format meant for the internet. While this format has been around for half a decade and is now five years old, it has not risen to instant fame and is yet to gain universal acceptance. That said, WebP does have a lot of uniqueness to offer, especially regarding image size and compression. It offers both lossy and lossless compression, provides better compression than both PNG and JPG, and supports lossless compression as well. So what does the WebP image format have to offer? In this article, we find the answer to this very question. WebP Image Format: Introduction In Google’s words: WebP is a new image format that provides lossless and lossy compression for images on the web. WebP lossless images are 26% smaller in size compared to PNGs. WebP lossy images are 25-34% smaller in size compared to JPEG images at equivalent SSIM index. WebP supports lossless transparency (also known as alpha channel) with just 22% additional bytes. Transparency is also supported with lossy compression and typically provides 3x smaller file sizes compared to PNG when lossy compression is acceptable for the red/green/blue color channels.
