Open source rocks
For a commercial company, it is always a serious choice to launch an open-source project. Sensio made this choice, and we are really glad we did it that way.
First, there is one very important thing that many companies don't understand: Open source brings business. Sensio has gained a good number of opportunities and clients thanks to symfony, and the time spent on the framework is really worth the pain.
It is also a great experience as far as human relationships are concerned. We are in touch with people from all over the world, we see new projects arise every day and people report it to us with enthusiasm, and, most important, we practiced our English a lot.
Our experience is not just all about PHP and business, there are also some great non-commercial projects that were born and grew up lately thanks to symfony. And we even received flowers for that!
So we want to thank all of the contributors, the ones who use symfony for their projects, and the loyal forum writers. Keep up making this community a success and open source a good choice!
And if some of you ever come by Paris, we'll be delighted to share a drink - symfony, free as in beer...
