Phalcon vs Yesod: What are the differences?
What is Phalcon? 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.
What is Yesod? A RESTful Haskell web framework built on WAI. Yesod believes in the philosophy of making the compiler your ally, not your enemy. We use the type system to enforce as much as possible, from generating proper links, to avoiding XSS attacks, to dealing with character encoding issues. In general, if your code compiles, it works. And instead of declaring types everywhere you let the compiler figure them out for you with type inference.
Phalcon and Yesod can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Fast" is the primary reason why developers consider Phalcon over the competitors, whereas "Haskell" was stated as the key factor in picking Yesod.

'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.
