I've been given the task of developing a project with Phalcon and I've spent three weeks using, strike that, TRYING to use it, and I've made very litte progress. The documentation has to be one of the worst out there. Kind of like Sarah Palin, says absolutely nothing with maximum verbosity. It's nice that you have all the pretty pictures but without explanations as to why one way or the other, it's virtually useless. I don't know how anyone ever gets anything usefull out of this lame framework.
I haven't found ANYTHING aobut Phalcon that is easy. Every step has been like walking on broken glass and rusty nails.
