Code generation make developers life easier by creating files and default content automatically so you don't have to.

Edge Side Includes (ESI) allows, with a compliant gateway cache, to cache a page fully and to update only parts of the page that have changed.

  • That's an amazing table, never saw anything like it! I remember one PHP developer once told me that Laravel is the extended Symfony and 'uses' it in many ways. Or maybe it was vise versa. Don't really remember. It says a good PHP developer should know a few PHP frameworks - Is that true? Trying to figure out which framework is the best to start with.
