Symfony is a complete framework designed to optimize the development of web applications by way of several key features. For starters, it separates a web application’s business rules, server logic, and presentation views. It contains numerous tools and classes aimed at shortening the development time of a complex web application. Additionally, it automates common tasks so that the developer can focus entirely on the specifics of an application. The end result of these advantages means there is no need to reinvent the wheel every time a new web application is built!
Symfony was written entirely in PHP 5. It has been thoroughly tested in various real-world projects, and is actually in use for high-demand e-business websites. It is compatible with most of the available databases engines, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server. It runs on *nix and Windows platforms. Let’s begin with a closer look at its features.
This site is aimed to support Symfony framework and it’s going to provide tips for developers and improvement ideas for site owners. Also we are planning to keep here latest versions of our Symfony plugins. We are going to review here sites built on symfony and estimate how good they are built. We have also planned to launch another services which might be helpfull for Symfony developers, for instance now on the right sidebar you may see aggregration of important for us RSS (Symfony Timeline and SymfonyLab Vote – launched by us digg-like service where we aggregate the most usefull Symfony/Php/Ajax resources and you can submit own there). The other service we propose is SymfonyJobs where you can post jobs or look for vacancies.
Also we have launched Twitter-based symfonians quick communication center Symfonians At Twitter which is also aggregated on our sidebar. It allows you to see what other symfony developers are working on and what they are doing at this moment.
If you have any other ideas or proposals – we would be happy to consider them.
Best regards, SymfonyLab Team
