Symfony is the most used and best valued framework for programming in PHP. It follows most of the best practices for web applications. Ideal to manage all the queries and requests to the server as well as to show the answers that the business logic requires. It uses object-oriented programming both in the business layer, and to manage the data model, which is a great advantage.
