I have decided to start attempting to develop one of my website ideas.
I have also decided, the best way for me to do this is to use a framework.
The only issue, I have never developed in any framework before (closest was editing stuff for Magento built in Zend, but I never really quite understood what I was doing).
I recently watched some easy to understand video's on MVC, and they helped me to understand ... especially the Classes, Objects and Properties.
However, with that in mind ... I only have an ok knowledge of straight forward PHP and MySQL.
So what would be a good framework to start with that will meet the following:
a) Relatively easy to pick up, maybe with tutorials or something
b) Extremely scalable ... on the off-chance I make the next facebook (Hey ... stop laughing!!!), I don't want the website to turn into the computicket fiasco.
Two frameworks I'm leaning towards are either CakePHP2 or Symfony 2. I'm not sure if CakePHP is very scalable, but it looks a helluva lot easier. Symfony seems more complicated, but is highly scalable and good on performance (Huge websites such as Yahoo Answers, DailyMotion and YouPron use it).
So I'm asking you guys your opinion ... which will be the better framework for me to use. Keep in mind, I will learn to use it as I develop.
