'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.
