Together with the community, we are now thrilled to live the little big revolution Symfony2 is bringing in our professional lives.
If you still have any doubts Symfony2 is going to revolutionize the web, find out which big project will be written from the ground up upon this framework.
Not only your specific projects, but also the PHP community in general will benefit from the adoption of Symfony2: the best from other web frameworks, core developers knowledge and experience has been concentrated in this project. Being exposed to patterns and approaches which Symfony2 suggests will definitely increase the average PHP developer skill level.
In fact spend a few hours with Symfony2 and you will meet things such as:
- everything is a bundle concept, an aspect which gives you a lot of flexibility in term of organization and code re-use;
- good patterns everywhere: the good thing about patterns is that are “Good For You” seeing them in use make you want use them yourself;
- pervasive presence of the “Dependency Injection” pattern using the Dependency Injection Container;
- a lively community which helps develop and mantain the framework itself and a vast ecosystem of well-written libraries.
A potential risk of this skill level increase is the drop of the number of developers who can jump on the Symfony2 wagon. The documentation team is making wonders to make the switch from sf1 as gentle as possible.
We want to be there to support with a visual approach in that situation.
We loved the idea of spreading knowledge in general, of spreading a good programming culture while helping the diffusion of Symfony2.
