PHP developers have a choice: they can design their own architecture or they can use a framework. Frameworks speed up development^ enhance collaboration^ and help keep code organized. In this course^ Drew Falkman introduces the six most popular Model-View-Controller frameworks: Zend^ Symfony^ CodeIgniter^ CakePHP^ Yii^ and Laravel. Drew describes the advantages of each framework and shows how to get and install the software. Then^ he demonstrates how to get the default pages for each framework up and running^ so you can see how the code is structured. In the final chapter^ Drew compares all the frameworks and provides resources to move forward with each one. Since your choice of framework affects the success of your project^ this course is designed to provide the information you need to make the right decision.
