CI is my favourite PHP Framework. But, Laravel is the most popular. But, CI is my first PHP Framework and I love it ever. Laravel is difficult to learn. But, CI is easy. I think CI also needs a built in Auth Library.

Look: I got turned down twice on job interviews because i was still using Codeigniter. So i'm done with it. It's either Laravel or Synfony for me because that's what the job market is asking. If you run a small firm and are able to determine the technology being used, great. Stick with CI. Otherwise, smart up and learn to use a modern framework or you're not getting a job.

@josetrindade

Maybe next time ask fist the employeer what framework they wanted?
And find an employer that's looking for a CI guy.

But using both CI and Laravel is hard to master simultaneously.

It's not being used any longer. You have job offers for Synfony, then Laravel, then Drupal, who uses Synfony components. For CI it's pretty close to nil.

Hmmm.

I googled Codeigniter Jobs and found loads. (The very first recruitment site listed had 409 current vacancies). The very first one was this:

Quote:PHP Developer - £40k + Benefits - LAMP Stack

£35,000 - £40,000 a year
The current PHP framework of choice is CodeIgniter. The role involves a large amount of PHP development, as well as MySQL database and Ubuntu Linux server...
CWJobs.co.uk - 12 hours ago - save job - email - more...

But there were quite a few.

Admittedly many stated Codeigniter, Laraval & Symfony such as this one:

@aulD if i find an offer for CI every month, that's a lot. As you understand, job offers in countries i don't live in don't count. You get the most requests for Wordpress, then Drupal. Knowing Drupal is definitely a must. As for frameworks, Symfony is a solid first. You still get a lot of requests for Zend, but you're starting to see Laravel as well. Half the CI jobs i found have a CI/Laravel in the description.

Do linux AND CI/PHP, thats $120k easy ;-) lol

But you guys are right, everyone does want Laravel... any CI jobs i fine are old ass legacy websites. No one wants to use CI when they have to get all these libraries or mess with the core to do new things, when laravel does it out of the box.

I love CI, it was my firsr framework, but as stated, i too have to move to latavel, due to the demand in the job market.

The project i started (on the side) is CI, but im switching it to laravel after this first release is done, unfortunately

40k GBP for London is a quite small amount.
