Whats is the best way to write a fast load bootstrap .

Hi , I want to know what the best way to write a fast project in Phalcon , I'm writing a project that should response more than 1000 request in second , consider I'll use caching but I wonder about the whole Phalcon framework , I don't know what's the best model to write a very fast bootstrap , for example useing Phalcon\DI\FactoryDefault() or not ? . How we should define our services ? with anonymous function or array style ?

any Idea ?

Common and quite good variant.

/public/index.php:

<?php

use \Phalcon\DI\FactoryDefault as PhDi;

define('DOCROOT', realpath(dirname(dirname(__FILE__))).DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR);

try {
    include DOCROOT . 'common/library/bootstrap.php';
    $di = new PhDi;
    $app = new Bootstrap($di);
    echo $app->run();

} catch (\Phalcon\Exception $e) {
    echo $e->getMessage();
} catch (PDOException $e){
    echo $e->getMessage();
}
