New PHP developers often wonder which framework is the best: Laravel, Yii, Symfony, CakePHP, Codeigniter, or something else? When it comes to the real deal, there are only two frameworks to consider: Yii and Laravel. Which one should you prefer? Which has better job prospects?
I chose Laravel, but since I’m not an expert, I find it hard to convince people who are in love with Yii2. But thankfully, I now have a defense from none other than the author of a very popular Yii2 book. Read and decide for yourself.
