Today we launched Smartburk on Symfony2

Since september I've been working on project for tv series with a friend of mine. Today we're launching the site called Smartburk which is built with Symfony2 framework.

I built Smartburk with my friend Tobias Sjösten. Smartburk lets its users keep track on the tv series they are following and also get recommendations for new series. One thing that makes it unique is that it is the first site of its kind in in Swedish. At the moment Smartburk only lives in the browser but mobile apps are in development.

We built Smartburk with Symfony2 PHP framework. This was my first large Symfony2 project and I've learnt a lot along the way. Knowledge I will also make use of as a Drupal developer since Drupal 8 will use a lot of Symfony components. Symfony and Drupal have a lot in common since they are both written in PHP and Open sourced. But they are also very different from each other. When you build with Drupal you get a lot to start with and then you configure and tweak it to suit your needs. With Symfony you start more from scratch and build exactly what you want. Which one is better for you depends on the project you are working on.

So if you like tv series (and speak Swedish) you should definitely check out Smartburk!
