  29. The perfect cocktail conclusion

  30. - This framework is fairly easy to start with. -

    It’s very powerful and has a strong opinion on how to do things. - It has some build in functionality and tools to get you started quickly. Laravel Symfony - This framework is VERY powerfull, provides lots of flexibility and extensibility. - There is no ultimate way of doing things. - It has a proven stability and is being supported by “the industry”.
  31. There is no “best” framework, its all about personal taste.
