Phalcon Interview Questions and Answers

Phalcon is a PHP web framework based on the model–view–controller (MVC) pattern. It was created by Andrés Gutiérrez, originally released in 2012, it is an open-source framework licensed under the terms of the BSD License.Unlike most PHP frameworks, Phalcon is implemented as a web server extension written in Zephir and C, aiming to boost execution speed, reduce resource usage, and handle more HTTP requests per second than comparable frameworks written primarily in PHP. One drawback of this approach is that root/administrative access is required on the server to install Phalcon by building a custom binary or using a precompiled one.

Phalcon’s initial release was made available on November 14, 2012. Phalcon 3.0.0 was released on 29 July 2016, this major release includes support for PHP 7 as well as being Phalcon’s first LTS (Long Term Support) release.
