Once you are online, it’s easy to find new technologies out there. Read some IT articles from websites and you probably think “yeah… it’s cool”, but it’s not really easy to get directly into those technologies, especially if you are a developer.How many months or years you have spent learning some programming languages/paradigms, only to face new things that say “leave it and try this one”?
I believe there are so many PHP developers in web development area, and they are mostly still using pure procedural paradigm. I can imagine sooner or later – just like me – they will read about Zend Framework one day, but instead of thinking this is a good news, maybe they will start worry about their time dealing with learning curve, adaptation, practice, and so on… while on the other hand, Zend Framework promises a rapid development (and yes, it’s TRUE).
This tutorial is for you, who needs quick (but not dirty) approach to get into MVC paradigm brought by Zend Framework.
First I will introduce you briefly what is Zend Framework, and then I will show two main concepts of Zend Framework: use-at-will architecture and MVC pattern.
