    PHP 8 goodies

    2020 is the year when PHP will change versions. The latest and greatest will no longer be 7 but 8. It is sad (kinda) since we will no longer be using a prime number as the latest version of PHP, which has additional significance as a number (here I am showing my nerdiness). There are 7 oceans, 7 continents, 7 layers of skin (2 outer and 5 inner), ocean waves roll in sevens, the rainbow has 7 colors, sound has 7 notes, etc. etc. Instead, we will be using 8, infinity rotated by 90 degrees.
