Thanks for the comment! I wasn’t really aware of the PHP paradigms as I’m very new to the language. But that does make sense, and I’m really interested about using Symfony components to build apps in the future when I have more knowledge about how to build PHP apps correctly.
I think Laravel is still a net positive because even if it doesn’t function optimally with the language, the low barrier to entry allows the PHP community to grow to the point where people are more involved in making those advances that PHP has been behind on the last few years. What do you think?
