Speed up your development with the Zend Framework!


The Zend Framework is a web application framework designed to make building complex PHP based web applications easier.

The Zend Framework contains a series of components (built using PHP 5) that manages many common task in web application development:

  • Zend_Form: to make form handling/processing easier.
  • Zend_Mail: makes email functionality trivial to create in PHP.
  • Zend_Db_Adapter: to connect to databases.
  • Zend_Pdf: allows you to easily create and edit PDF documents.

… And this is just a small sampling.

Web application frameworks like the Zend Framework provide a few key advantages:

  1. The code is well tested and optimized – less chance of bugs.
  2. Frameworks provide a standardized way of doing things, so people new to a project, can easily jump in without having
    to learn a whole new architecture.
  3. A grab-bag of pre-made components really speeds up the development process.

As such, I think it makes real sense to learn the Zend Framework.
