PHP

+ - Drupal "unofficially competes" as framework->

tgeller writes: "Drupal developer Ben Buckman attended the BostonPHP Framework Bake-Off with the hopes of pitting the CMS against CakePHP, Symfony, Zend, and CodeIgniter. He was told that he couldn't because Drupal is "not a framework", a response he felt was "coder-purist snobbery ('it's not a framework if you build any of it in a UI')".

So he decided to unofficially compete in the back of the room by accepting the challenge of building job-posting app in 30 minutes, while the official competitors did the same from the stage. He recorded the results, which are impressive. In the process he raised the question: What *is* a framework, anyway?"
