Cocoa (OS X) vs Phalcon: What are the differences?
Developers describe Cocoa (OS X) as "The Cocoa frameworks consist of libraries, APIs, and runtimes that form the development layer for all of OS X". Much of Cocoa is implemented in Objective-C, an object-oriented language that is compiled to run at incredible speed, yet employs a truly dynamic runtime making it uniquely flexible. Because Objective-C is a superset of C, it is easy to mix C and even C++ into your Cocoa applications. On the other hand, Phalcon is detailed as "Web framework delivered as a C-extension for PHP". Phalcon is a web framework implemented as a C extension offering high performance and lower resource consumption.
Cocoa (OS X) and Phalcon can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Great community " is the primary reason why developers consider Cocoa (OS X) over the competitors, whereas "Fast" was stated as the key factor in picking Phalcon.
Phalcon is an open source tool with 9.74K GitHub stars and 1.78K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Phalcon's open source repository on GitHub.

'm a professional web developer from Vietnam with B.S Physics and Engineering. I'm a Phalcon enthusiast as Opensource. In free time, I was support on forum Phalcon also my forum and contribution core Phalcon.
I think precompiled PHP is the way to go. It saves CPU cycles, RAM and overall I/O. It saves money too. Smaller requirements = smaller bills.
I've tried symfony and zend. Phalcon was easiest to use.
