'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.
I found mean.io just smooth, fun, orginized and just work out-of-the-box.
MongoDB is a solid NoSQL store. Angular.js is being vetted as a potential front-end framework for the website (though it may ultimately not be used for the non-app site). Everything is running on node.js and hosted via an Express.js web server (though we are looking into Koa.js as it is the official successor to Express.js)
FULL STACK ( preferred if;at all possible! ). Any "NEW" project (all me) I am tasked with I try to sketch it out with MEAN in mind first and then will tweak or stray from the 'plan' when necessary
