Before Symfony was spelled with a capital “S” there was another symfony, the first version of the framework. It already meant a lot to me at the time. But with the arrival of Symfony 2 it became clear that something very important was happening in the world of PHP programming. It appears that this framework is able to turn amateur website makers (like I used to be) into actual software developers. What is the secret? What makes Symfony so special? And why am I still hooked?
We’ll look at pieces of code, the Symfony ecosystem, the people behind it, the things that have been written about it, and the experience that I have with it. We’ll take a trip down memory lane, collecting pieces for our Symfony scrapbook, while we try to construct an answer to these questions.
