On the Inviqa Tech Blog Ben Longden has posted a Year in Review of PHP and the community, including some of the major trends that came into their own last year (2012).
Another year has passed, and yet again we find ourselves reflecting on what has happened in the world of PHP over the past year. Let's take a moment to look back over our 2012 predictions and see how close we were!
Trends and technologies mentioned in the retrospective include:
- Framework Convergence
- Serious Caching
- Best Practices
- PHP Closures
Their "look ahead" predictions to what's coming in 2013 include things like an emphasis on content as a service, improvements to dependency injection containers and a push for BDD testing with PHPSpec and Behat.
