At a Glance: Symfony
Initially released by SensioLabs in 2005 under an MIT open-source license, the PHP framework Symfony uses a combination of existing PHP open-source projects and native Symfony components to speed up development and maintenance of web applications. If you’re looking to build a business blog, professional portfolio, or other enterprise web service, a Symfony developer can help get your project started.
Symfony developers have a variety of skills to help you build everything needed to power the back end of your website. They can help you set up your LAMP stack, customize existing sites based on content management systems (CMS) like WordPress, or create open-source projects like OpenSky. This popular web development framework supports dependency injection, low performance overhead with a bytecode cache, and full control over configuration—including directory structure and foreign libraries. A Symfony developer on Upwork can use popular open-source components such as Propel, PHPUnit, and Twig alongside Symfony components like Yaml, EventDispatcher, and DependencyInjection to speed up the development and maintenance of open-source web projects.
