Yesterday I finally achieved something I would certainly call one of my nerd bucket list items. Even though it's a small achievement and a very minor change it still feels great!

I finally was able to find something to contribute in PHP-src! I fixed a bug with the build configs that was preventing libargon2 from being used with password hashing!

So here's to opening my first PHP issue and sending a PR to fix it! 🍻
Peep the PR here: https://github.com/php/php-src/pull/7538


Big shout out to Ben Ramsey (one of the 8.1 release managers) for giving me some guidance and answering my questions. Overall cannot state how much I appreciate the help making this new (to me) process everything so easy.

Released an open-source project
I've released version 4.2.0 of ramsey/uuid, which is primarily a maintenance release, with a few bug fixes and a new base exception interface, implemented by all the library's interfaces, for easier catching.
