Well, performance is MUCH better than it used to be, PHP 7 and 8 made big strides in performance ... one other remarkable change is the move of PHP towards typing - type declarations/type checking.

Blogs, well of course there are many, we talked about Spatie, so here you go: spatie.be/blog

What's new in PHP 8:

Haha okay, yes you should be!

Laravel is a great framework with a lively community & a vibrant ecosystem, they're innovating a lot - for example, recently I came across a version that runs "serverless" on AWS Lambda (vapor.laravel.com), check it out if you're into that kind of stuff.

And remember the name Taylor Otwell, he's the creator (twitter.com/taylorotwell), you'll see him mentioned quite often.
