    Review ofZend FrameworkZend Framework

    Zend framework is firstly designed for experienced professional developers, who have been part of international teams for years. With Zend Framework one could harness nuances of high scale eLearning, eCommerce and eBanking applications without fuss and implement robust, market demands meeting solutions. Zend Framework ships simple, without modules installed, so firstly to build up bare-bones for simple modular app, you will have to preinstall the set of GitHub hosted plugins and modules. Added to the mix, Microsoft is one of the main sponsors of the Zend Framework project, so your company would experience state of the art technologies mash up right away from the beginning of implementing theoretical application project to code stack. All in all, several international associations are awaiting you to enroll to enhance the experience of using Zend Framework 2.

    Review ofPhoenix FrameworkPhoenix Framework

    The Framework is new but has what it takes to take your apps to the next level, right now rails 5 is beta with ActionCable to make real time but I must say ruby isn't the right tool for doing real time but Elixir is really fast and has great concurrency and other erlang features.

    setup an api for a client with tornado backend. incredibly fast and lightweight. unfortunately breaks down when using third party libraries which block internally.

    The older parts of our core are still using ZF1. We are migrating to simpler framework agnostic controllers with 3rd party components.

    Tornado with Async/Await coroutines provided in Python 3.5 make up for an excellent stack for a micro-service.
