I have worked with PHP for almost 20 years. Yes, it takes a lot of time. And in general I worked building my projects from scratch - or creating some kind of small custom framework to turn the work easier, more productive and less error prone. But when I first heard about Phalcon, I became really curious how it works.
"A high-performance PHP framework, with a small memory footprint and a lot of cool features in it?"
Yes, it looks interesting. Maybe using Phalcon with other technologies, such as Swoole, Containers ( Docker and Kubernetes ), and Kafka, we could build solutions for high-load environments, like IoT, for example.
So, I started to play with it, and set a goal to build some applications, deploy and proceed with some benchmark tests. This is just the beginning. Anyone interested in joining me in this endeavour?
