续命，JetBrains 成立 PHP 基金会！
Laravel News 报道称，包括
JetBrains 在内的多位社区成员，刚刚宣布了 PHP 基金会的正式成立。作为一家非盈利组织，这项
Open Collective 倡议旨在持续推进这款语言的未来发展。通过资助为 PHP 语言做出贡献的全职和兼职开发者们，PHP 基金会希望能够确保该语言的长期繁荣。
Nikita Popov 决定将精力从
早在 2011 年，他就投身了 PHP 的研究，并在为
JetBrains 工作的近三年时间里，为 PHP 7.4 / 8.0 / 8.1 这三个大版本做出了重要贡献。
Nikita started working on PHP in 2011 when he was still in high school. He made his first contribution in PHP 5.5. During his 10 years in the PHP world, Nikita implemented innumerable features, bug fixes, and improvements to the development process of the language.
Nikita has worked on PHP at JetBrains for close to three years, managing to accomplish a lot during that time. Three major releases – PHP 7.4, PHP 8.0, and PHP 8.1 – include many of his contributions from that period.
Besides PHP, Nikita has long been a contributor to Rust and LLVM. And just like PHP, when it grew from a hobby to a real job, Nikita has decided to focus his professional activities on LLVM.
Nikita is leaving JetBrains as of December 1 and will spend significantly less time on PHP. As sad as it is to see him go, we congratulate Nikita and wish him every success in his new journey!
Thank you, Nikita, for everything you’ve done for PHP! Your work is truly appreciated by millions of PHP developers.
