## Moving Toward PHP 8
Legacy code is a fact of life for most developers. As code-bases get older and their technical debt increases, the lure of starting a project from scratch gets brighter and brighter. That way may lay danger! Thankfully the PHP ecosystem has many tools like rector, phpstan, and phpcs for modernizing code, so let's take a look at implementing them with common practices to lift your application up and work toward PHP 8.
