Symfonynerds’ 2009 Symfony Developers Survey Results is out! If you are a Symfony Developer and have not completed this survey, you could still do that, click here.
Most developers went straight from Symfony 1.0 to 1.2 and skipped 1.1 Propel is the dominant ORM framework, which is interesting in light of the recent announcement that Doctrine will be the default ORM framework in Symfony 1.3 and moving forward. Ubuntu is by far the most popular platfrom Symfony developers choose to run their applications on The question with the most evenly spread results is “How long have you been developing Symfony applications for” (see question 6). Indicating the community has a wide range of experience with lots of people under one year experience and many over two years experience. Most Symfony developers have never developed in another web application framework jQuery is by far the most popular library used with Symfony Eclipse PDT is the most popular IDE for Symfony developers No surprises here: Most Symfony developers are from Europe (which saddens us Aussies – we need more Aussie Symfony developers!) There were no developers that took the survey indicated they run Symfony applications on Oracle and MSSQL. MySQL was the most popular database used by far.
In regards to location of Symfony developers, there are few of us here in New Zealand! Too bad the survey did not have option for New Zealand or South pacific. I can’t remember what I selected, could be Australia or Asia.
