      Very nice! 👍
      I think PHP deserves a second look, it has definitely improved immensely and is not the same thing it was a decade ago.

      In related news Ubuntu 20.04 recently upgraded from Python 3.7 to 3.8.

        If its not included by default then it doesn't matter.
        I never install it from their repository since as far as I know all the programs in their repository is outdated.
        I just download and install XAMPP, which comes with everything (Apache, PHP, MariaDB, phpMyAdmin).
        The only thing that it doesn't come with and it should is the Xdebug debugger, which on Linux unfortunately we need to compile it ourselves.

        If Ubuntu devs want to make web developers life easier maybe they should a another option in the installer where you can specify that you're a web developer and stuff XAMPP + git + Node.js + Kcachegrind (good to see profiling files made by Xdebug) + Meld. can be installed by default.

          Using xampp is hurting your development as a software developer. It's simply something professional devs don't use anymore - many reasons for this including the fact that you won't be replicating your production environment with it.

          Start learning how to work with docker. https://phpdocker.io/ is a great starting point.

            We're currently serving several billion PHP requests per month with 7.4. It works well. But it's going to feel out of date as soon as 8 is released: the JIT performance looks very promising.
