About this website

SYMVC.COM, the SY is short for Symfony and the rest refers to the web technology called MVC;(MVC being an abbrieviation of Model, View and Controller) and it consists of object orientated programming techniques imported to PHP from JAVA.

We have developed this webiste using Symonfy and we cannot describe in words how much we have fallen in love with the technology due to its flexibilty. We highly recommend symfony for websites that are not clear on their goals, static websites and complex UI based applications/websites.

Most of our php experience stems from Drupal, but since the introduction of Symfony in Drupal 8, we now prefer coding in Symfony as Drupal sadly has an ugly framework in comparison .

Now don't get us wrong, we will continue using Drupal for most of our projects as it is quick for development and most of the functionalities are ready out of the box making it the 'takeaway meal' of the programming world whereas; Symfony being the homecooked meal.

Our plans for this website

Coming soon so watch this space; We are planning to develop a client portal so that you can view the progress of your projects in real time, the aim is to make it a first point of contact with all clients. Though the main goal of this website for now is to advertise our company and our skills as well as to attract more clients.

Our clients

The satisfaction of our clientele is of utmost importance to us and you can be rest assured that the quality of our work is always guaranteed. If you are not satisfied about any part of our project simply say so and I will always resolve any issues. Our aim is to establish a long-term business relation with you however big or small your requirements are. Quick and easy just drop us an email or call.

Unsure of what framework to choose? For eCommerce websites we would recommend Magento, for quick websites we would recommend Drupal, and for bespoke websites we would recommend Symfony. The choice is of course entirely yours.

Important to note that; We will never share any clients' details with others/third parties etc unless you the client specifically say to do so; otherwise it is simply unethical and does not coincide with our standards of conduct. Private and confidentality is first and foremeost regardless of the size of your project. We know full-well that the majority of clients do not want the history etc of their projects mentioned publicly, we highly respect that and of course "We don't want our back-end to be sued".
