Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Intro to Symfony 2.x, part of MVC Frameworks for Building PHP Web Applications (2015).
- Symfony has long been one…of the more popular PHP frameworks out there…and for good reason.…They have a solid code base community…and good documentation.…The framework itself has a lot to offer.…It's flexible, uses a decent modular architecture,…has a deep toolbox,…some nice rapid application development features,…and isn't too overwhelming to get started in.…Like Zend, Symfony is also backed by a company.…It's backed by the company, SensioLabs.…They're currently on version 2.6.…Symfony has been distributed with the MIT license.…
The MIT license is the most flexible license out there.…Previous versions of Symfony have leaned…towards the full-stacked model.…However with Version 2, they made it much more open.…Currently it is such that you can use the framework…or you can use the components separately.…It's highly flexible.…It has a lot of powerful tools…like the DependencyInjection…and allows you to incorporate them as you see fit.…Symfony components are extremely portable.…In effect, they're used in many other applications…

Q: When setting up Composer on my Windows machine, I'm asked to specify where php.exe is located. Where can I find it?
Q: Why doesn't my folder structure in Laravel match what's on screen?
A: Version 5 of Laravel was released after the recording of this course. The core information in this course is still valid, but the Laravel's main files have been reorganized. For more details on how this reorganization has changed the structure of Laravel files, please see https://mattstauffer.co/
Q: Why isn't mcrypt prepped for PHP when I run the phpize command?
A: If you're having trouble setting up mcrypt, you may need to change the directory from which you run the phpize command. You'll want to navigate to the /ext/mcrypt/ folder within the folder for the version of PHP that you're running.
