Symfony PHP framework

At Inmeres, we acquired an expertise on the implementation of the Symfony framework to develop powerful, reliable and extensible applications more quickly.
PHP always had its libraries of functions available to the developer, so we didn’t have to reinvent the wheel for each new project. This started with the PEAR project enabling the developer to plug modules to its project. But since Ruby on Rails demonstrated the benefits of the MVC model (to split the main applicative functions: Model, View, Controller), and since PHP 5, many frameworks were created by the open source community. The common characteristics of these frameworks were the MVC model, the scaffolding (batch creation of the model and basic pages to update the objects), the implementation of AJAX, and tools to debug, test and deploy applications.
At Inmeres, we are always keen to try new frameworks or any tool which can bring any benefit to our projects. The reasons we often choose Symfony for our projects are the following:

  • Full PHP 5 and object oriented with a clean and reliable code ,
  • Native management of internationalization,
  • Performance with a smart cache system,
  • Documentation, thanks to the great symphony community.

About Julien

In 1995 I wanted to learn everything about the emerging Internet, so I joined a Multimedia Institute for my studies. I started working in an internet start-up in 1999, then worked in France as a consultant for several years, helping companies setup their web strategy and build their online presence. Looking for a dynamic company offering new challenges in an innovative environment , I joined Inmeres in 2006 here in the UK. One of my main task at Inmeres is currently to maintain and improve an insurance system selling hundreds of policies online every day.

Once I am away from work, I like to organise mountain biking trips for my friends, in hilly places of the earth. Close to London, I can recommend the Surrey North Downs.
