It's not what PHP needs, it's what companies/developers need.
Especially in a climate where excellent programmers are few and far
between. Thus, good frameworks speed development, ensure standards,
reduce errors, and reduce maintenance.
ie at the meeting, someone recommended using prepared statements with
pdo as a means of reducing attacks. A good framework has that built in.
Do you have to have a framework? no. Can you write your own? yes. But
these approaches take time and talent, both of which need to be
minimized to increase odds of success.
Still looking for that killer framework - don't see it.
