John Taber on frameworks

John Taber, traffic engineer and PHP developer, has a great post comparing the various MVC frameworks available for PHP, as well as Ruby on Rails.

We really don’t care what the language is or what the plumbing looks like, just so long as we can get the program to do what we want, is super maintainable, and is fast to market. The last thing we want to do is CRUD stuff. Actually, a framework concept should be ideal for us. Which is why I looked so hard at all the choices…. These are strictly our opinions and of course, YMMV.

John compares them with a real practical sense. On a side note, for some reason I find it funny to read a traffic engineer write “Your Mileage May Vary” (YMMV).
