Phalcon is an open-source, full-stack PHP framework for developing web applications. Unlike traditional frameworks that are written in PHP and interpreted at runtime, Phalcon is written in C and served as a PHP extension. This design choice makes it one of the fastest frameworks available, as it operates close to the hardware and bypasses the overhead associated with run-time interpretation. Phalcon follows MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture and comes with many features such as ORM (Object Relational Mapping), templating engines, caching components, form builders elements for input validation and security practices by default which help developers build secure web applications.
