Here on our dev servers we turn PHP error reporting full on so we get to know of any issues with our code well before it hits production (where errors are turned off). This does however cause problems with older legacy sites that generate reams of warning errors because the developers were slack and – [...]
Francios a core member of the Symfony team recently blogged about the 20 most popular plugins of the Symfony project based upon page views.

The positions are in Paris, France, and we are willing to do the necessary paperwork and look [...]

Unfortunately I started getting very irritated by some annoying and performance degrading bugs [...]
