• 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.
