Although it is interesting to read bickering about PHP in the blog comments, forum threads, or Facebook group discussions, this post is not about comparing PHP with other languages. It is about an important factor that keeps PHP on the top - the frameworks.
The SymfonyLive conferences are a great way to meet Symfony experts from all around the world. They are being held in several cities this year alone: Paris, Berlin, San Francisco and London. The 4th edition of SymfonyLive London was held on 17th and 18th of September 2015. My colleague Ivo and I attended, together with our partner and friend, Antonio of Locastic.
Recently we have built a website alutec.no with our partners Keyteq as project leaders and Locastic as development partners. That would not be such a special news if the site was not built on top of a very interesting combination: content is managed with the eZ Publish 5.* version which is based on Symfony framework and shop features are implemented with Sylius components which are installed on top of the same Symfony instance.
Yesterday I had a great discussion with Paweł Jędrzejewski about Sylius and would it be a good choice as a base for eZ eCommerce solution. After 30 minutes he lost the internet connection, the discussion was abruptly finished but it was near to end anyway. Hope the recorded video will still be interesting.
