🐘 + 🦀 + 🕸️ = php-ext-wasm

🎉 New feature: Imported functions! This is huge 🚀!

Any progam with `extern` functions, can define their implementations in PHP.
WASM can integrate your PHP framework!

@hywan ‪Also, not mentioned in the article, but more machines means more maintenance, more work to orchestrate all the machines, the backups, the deployments etc. So more costs, that can be avoided by optimizing the code!‬

php-ext-wasm was trending on Github… in the C category, yup, it happened to me!
