I agree with everyting except with the "Laravel is like Wordpress" bit.

Yes, Laravel is big and heavy if you want to use more features. You could very well build a lightweight performant application with only a few of it's features if you wanted to.

So, I view laravel as a nice wrapper to symfony with some cool new features, but yeah. symfony could be viewed as an industry standard or at least a starting point for any sort of project
