Just skimming through the PHP 7 Upgrade Guide and am REALLY impressed with the coverage of the new stuff in here - it goes way deeper than I thought, and is showing me things about PHP 7 that I didn't know about. There's been so much talk about PHP 7 being faster, and maybe even some "Just drop it in" mentality without discussion of the actual differences. I think this is going to be a really valuable resource for people - It should be required reading for all PHP devs!
