PHP Frame­work Sym­pho­ny

Wed­nes­day 29 April 2009 00:37

Some job re­quires PHP Frame­work Sym­pho­ny skills, so I might check that out. But it al­ways amazes me how im­ma­ture the PHP com­mu­ni­ty is. At a Glance, there are 3 dif­fer­ent sta­ble ver­sions of the frame­work, and their de­f­i­n­i­tion of sta­ble is that it's sup­port­ed for only 1 year. Looks like the Sym­pho­ny frame­work is some hob­by project from some­one plan­ning to move on to Ruby, Python or a prop­er job in three years? Why would any­one choose to use a frame­work that fails to pro­vide medi­um to long term com­mit­ment to in­vest­ments in a se­ri­ous code­base? Or do they know those rapid PHP pro­to­types usu­al­ly get rewrit­ten in Ruby or Python well with­in those three years, or is PHP it­self not re­al­ly sta­ble enough to build frame­works on that have a rea­son­able time to live?

It's symfony, not symphony, by the way. I'm feel­ing skilled al­ready...
