First thoughts are Symfony is ace!
Only been using Symfony for 1 project but the amount of coding it has saved has been worth the time spent learning how it works.
To use it you work with Bundles that you think of as modules. You'll use the command line to create the bundle then create Entities that are really your data structure. Once you have your bundles and entities you run some commands on the command line and you have a working app! It creates all your forms, controllers, database tables and structure from your entities.
For example, you have a Blog bundle, you create and Entity for blog and category and in your blog entity you add name, date created and body then add a relation to category as many to many, then you add an entity for category and add name and a many to many relationship to blog. Now run 4 commands on the command line and you have a working app.
