Zend Framework has become one of the standard PHP frameworks since its release in 2007. In this workshop, Rob will explore the next version, Zend Framework 2. Starting with an overview of the new features, we will then look at how to build a ZF2 application.
We will build an ZF2 application from the ground up over the course of the tutorial. We’ll delve into the some of the more powerful features of the framework including the MVC system with its event manager and dependency injector, data access and forms. We will also look at the various extension points in ZF2 and how they can be leveraged to customise applications and will also look at how ZF2 differs from ZF1.
The topics that we will cover during the day are:<ul>
<li>An introduction to ZF2, covering organisation, namespaces, MVC system & coding style</li>
<li>A look at the underlying ZF2 components: Zend\Stdlib, Autoloading, Dependency Injector & EventManager </li>
<li>Creating an application with Zend\Tool</li>
<li>Routing and controllers</li>
<li>Modelling with mappers to Zend\Db</li>
