Drupal and Symfony Project align - what does this mean?

Last week at DrupalCon Denver Dries Buytaert announced that Drupal 8 will use more features of the Symfony Framework.

Symfony provides an architecture, components and tools for developers to build complex web applications faster. Choosing symfony allows you to release your applications earlier, host and scale them without problem, and maintain them over time with no surprise

Symfony beneļ¬ts

Dries made the following points about Symfony

  • A robust, modern toolkit for today's web
  • Well-tested, open source code
  • A healthy, welcoming community behind it
It's like when we adopted jQuery, but for the backend!

Below is a short video to explain what this actually means for Drupal 8. You can also watch Dries' full Keynote below to get the context.
