The Phalcon framework is an awesome PHP framework that exists as a C-extension to the language. This allows it to be incredibly fast. But aside from its quickness, it is an amazingly powerful fraemwork with excellent documentation that follows many best practises of modern software development. This includes using the Direct Injection pattern to handle service resolution across classes, a PSR-0 compliant autoloader, MVC architecture (or not), caching handlers for database, flatfile, redis, etc.. and a ton of additional features. The purpose of this project is to establish a base project with Phalcon that uses the best practices from the Phalcon Framework to implement best practises of API Design.
