While I was lucky enough to see the announcement of OpenOffice at OSCON a few years back, this week I missed what may one day become the NextBigThing for the PHP Community from Zend.
The PHP Collaboration Project is an open source initiative through which the PHP community and partners will create an industrial-grade PHP Web application development and deployment environment.
Sure, at the moment it is just an announcement. However, if anyone is going to be able to muster the open source and big-business backing to actually pull off a decent/universal programming platform for PHP it would be Zend.
Good luck guys!
