Being a PHP Developer in 2015

This is just some thoughts on being a PHP developer in 2015;

A standard web project before used to just require you to setup a local web server, and then you’d upload to a standard web host with some worries about PHP versions perhaps but little to no thought required for the server side of things.Frameworks were a new thing, CodeIgniter was (to me at the time) the best thing to happen to PHP,  introducing me to PHP MVC patterns, easily integrated vendor libraries (I never got into Zend Framework) and Twig.
