Video: Getting ready for PHP 8.1

Mohamed Said has a new video on the Laravel Youtube channel that covers PHP 8.1 and some of changes and more that should be aware of.

Topics the video covers include:

  • New Enum Types
  • Readonly Properties
  • Using "new" in initializers
  • Pure intersection types

Laravel has also started getting everything ready for PHP 8.1 and it will be fully working when Laravel 9 is released in 2022. Also, you can now use Laravel Sail with PHP 8.1 if you'd like to get your local setup ready.
