The Most Popular PHP Framework of 2015

We've got a new survey up and running, looking for the most popular PHP framework in 2015. We're also giving away PhpStorm and Learnable subscriptions, so if you don't mind giving us a few minutes of your time, it could be worth your while :)

Help us out with some useful data? We promise to share the results!
It's time for SitePoint's annual framework survey again - which one is most popular? Why? Among which nationality and age group? Find out!

3 UX Failures in Designing an Email Unsubscribe Flow

I wrote a semi-rant about some awful practices in email communication.
It's tempting to get petulant when designing an unsubscribe flow. In some ways you're designing a break-up. Bruno shows you how to take the high road.

Modernizing Legacy Apps in PHP

I read and reviewed Paul M. Jones' book about modernizing spaghetti like apps. Trust me when I say that this book is so good it can make even the shittiest projects like WordPress good and testable. There's a 10% off coupon at the end of the post, if you want to buy it.
Modernizing Legacy Applications in PHP is a book that promises to help you bring ancient horrible projects up to speed. Does it? Find out in this review!

One should be able to down vote some of these in order to never see them again. Giving a reason would be a good feature too. "Clickbait, zero truth"

Ajax-friendly page-ready checks and custom events

I wrote a beginner friendly tutorial on using custom JavaScript events to fire off events when some content is done loading via Ajax - so you can have proper "page ready" events trigger only when the desired element exists. In my case, it came in handy for upgrading the Trello Chrome extension I built, but you might find other uses for it.
Bruno Skvorc will run you through a short tutorial on building a JavaScript library that fires off custom made events when an ajax load has been completed!

Best veal steak I ever ate. Comfy, cozy, great wine. Very intimate and somewhat hard to find, but worth it. Also somewhat pricey.

Chewy and incredibly greasy and fat steak (the worst entrecote ever), unprofessional and unfriendly staff (rolled eyes at our complaint and just left), definitely not worth the money - avoid at all costs.

Excellent Zante Lamb, fantastic meat, very juicy and tasty. Quite a fancy tavern, considering amount of food per euro, but a foodie's heaven. Also, the elusive Alfa beer is on offer here.

Fantastic ethnic food. Highly recommend the "meza for 2". You'll get stuffed with awesomeness.

Brilliant service, very friendly and always smiling staff. Great sake, high quality chopsticks, and most importantly, absolutely amazing food. We ate Maki Mori A and Maki Mori B menus, and both were mindblowing.

Been here with the missus for a couple relaxing wellness days and we were reborn. A fantastic view from the fourth floor overlooking the sea, amazingly comfortable beds and extraordinary food during both dinner and breakfast are just some of the perks - then there's the saunas, the roof which overlooks the town and coast, the pandering by the pool, the custom breakfast orders if you don't like anything of the 100 foods on offer. Will definitely visit again.
