Before talking about Symphony, it is necessary to clarify what the PHP programming language consists of.


PHP is a programming language used to build web pages and applications. PHP runs on the server, so when a request is made on a web page, it is common that to give the answer to your need, it is using a PHP code.


One of the most common uses for the PHP language is to use it in the development of logging in and out of a web page. The web page can be built with HTML, but once the user enters their name and password, a request is sent to the server and PHP comes into play here.


This connects to the database and allows the user to enter the web page.

What Symfony does is play with the HTTP service, this consists of a client making a request through a browser, that request is processed by the server code and it prepares a response and returns it to the client through the browser.




One of the peculiarities that Symfony has is that it gives you a Model-View-Controller structure that makes the development very scalable and makes it friendly to work as a team due to the structure it offers you, such as its route system, its system of front-end, all those tools make developing simple and scalable.

Our developers at Rootstack have used this framework to carry out different projects, such as the creation of a guarantee system for a construction company in Panama to channel complaints and claims from clients when receiving a property.




With this guarantee system, we managed to automate the complaints and claims process: Appointments are scheduled for the survey on site with photo capture with details to generate order and assign the contractor. Assignment of tickets to contractor according to the category of damage. Ticket assignment to contractor according to damage category, all with the help of Simfony.
