Stefan Koopmanschap's Blog:
Don't make them compete, make them work together!

Stefan Koopmanschap has a suggestion for developers out there using frameworks - don't limit yourself to just one framework, think more cooperative.

Most developers seem to limit themselves to a single framework. Be it Zend Framework (more popular than I even thought), be it symfony, there's even still a huge amount of custom "we built it because we have our own needs" frameworks out there, even in companies doing things similar to any other web development company out there.

He recommends looking around at other frameworks (usually the component-based ones work best) to see if there's something that could help you out when your primary falls a bit flat. Don't force yourself to stick with one just because it's "the company standard" - branch out and pull pieces from other frameworks and avoid the "redundant rewrite syndrome" in your code.
