Jérémy GACHET, our Consultant, Symfony Expert since 7 years, is sharing his experience with this tool.
Jérémy Gachet : « Symfony is for long-term projects with a significant business scope. Working with Symfony2, is using the best tool in the PHP world. There is a good dynamic in this framework which motivates us, as a Developer, to improve ourselves continuously. We can solve recurrent needs of the applications in a simple and easy way, which allows us to focus on the business side of the project with maximum flexibility because of all the layers of abstraction implemented in the tool. We are very proud, and also for all Developers who are using Symfony since a long time, to see big plateforms as Drupal, to rethink itself to include this persuasive logic in our projects. »
