I am currently in East-Timor, again….that’s about the 10th times I come on 2 years!
I have been re-writing from scratch the customer and billing system for the electricity and water companies (actually government bodies).
This time I decided to go with Symfony PHP5-MVC framework. It was my first experience with this framework but I can tell you it is pretty amazing! It took me 1 month to learn and rewrite my app. Not only it is very fast to code due to a lot of automatisation, keep you using best practices and help you to do re-usable code but on top of this the application is less buggy than before (and by far!) and with features that were not yet in the previous version (plain PHP4 with very basic MVC) that took me about 4 to 6 months!
This should motivate any of you for Symfony…unless you are not a programmer!
I post here 2 very basic screenshots. I will put a live demo as soon as I am back from Timor, this is not really possible from here due to the terrible internet connection.
I know there are people waiting on the forum for some answers about ical4WP or gWidgets. Sorry guys, as long as I am here in Timor I will not have time to do much on these apps but I promise I will try to catch up as soon as I am back.
