In the code4lib SIG Spring Forum, we will be introducing the web framework, examining symfony (PHP)  and Sinatra (Ruby) . symfony is a full-scale MVC framework, while Sinatra is a micro-framework designed for quickly creating web applications in Ruby with minimal effort.
After the presentations and Q&A, there will be time available for lightning talks - attendees will be given the chance to share their framework experiences in 5-minute sessions. We will also facilitate a discussion of Drupal (PHP) . Sharing some of the characteristics of both frameworks and content management systems (CMS), Drupal has also found much use in the library world.
