Hi everyone,

Laravel 11's afterglow is still shining bright after its launch last week, and this week we still have a number of articles on the topic including a list of resources for getting up to speed with Laravel 11. Speaking of launches. PHP 8.2 & 8.3 also released their latest bug fix updates. If you want to read up on PHP 8.3's must-see features, we also have a deep dive post in the Articles section. In Tutorials we have a guide on how to implement multiple authentication in Laravel, as well as a tutorial on how to integrate component architecture into Symfony. Finally in Podcasts we have a new episode from Jake and Michael from Laravel news podcast on topics like Laravel 11 configs, rate limiting and welcome pages. No Compromises ponders on the possibility of going too far with abstraction, while Syntax gives an overview of Docker geared towards web developers. We have all that and more, so we do hope you enjoy this week's newsletter. If you're a student or developer on the move and want the latest PHP news and updates in one place, then subscribe to PHPWeekly.
