So, I'm starting on a new rather large project which needs to be capable of crazy fast performance (maybe not Google/Facebook crazy, but still pretty high spec).
Normally Wordpress is my go-to CMS of choice (don't want to discuss that here =p), but it's not going to cut it for this project.
I was thinking of building something from scratch, but in this day and age, that's a bit silly.
I did some research and I'm thinking Symfony is going to be my best bet. I played around with some of it's stuff. It's a bit different (mainly the directory structure), but it seems like a pretty solid properly-namespaced MVC library. I think it'll fulfill the needs of my project pretty well.
I just wanted to ask everyone that may have used Symfony for general thoughts. Are there any gotchas with it? Is it capable of really high performance (it's caching engine seems pretty solid, so I'm hoping it is)? Anything else I should know?
