About PHP.Watch

PHP.Watch is a website to track, learn, and keep in touch with PHP development.

Maintained by Ayesh Karunaratne, a Sri Lanka-born software architect, now traveling the world full-time while working as a security researcher, software architect, and a speaker. I try to document all the changes in PHP in an organized fashion, and provide clear documentation, testing, and benchmarks.

In addition to the written content, I have delivered talks related to what's happening with PHP core development at DrupalCon Vienna, Dutch PHP Conference, and a few other smaller events.

Most of the information available on this website are also available freely on PHP.Watch API.

If you are reading this and have contributed to the PHP project in terms of writing code, documentation, issue queues, or even mentioned PHP at a dinner table, you folks are awesome!

Much love. Smile.
