In the next several weeks, I will be evaluating two PHP frameworks: Code Igniter and CakePHP. I have been coding in PHP for several years now, and that’s without the help of a framework. I would still recommend this approach to anyone who is learning PHP for the very first time.
Knowing the basics of a programming language is essential first and foremost. A programmer needs to know the ins and outs of a language before jumping on a framework.
One of the reasons I want to use a PHP framework is for the rapid development of applications. So, in the next two weeks I will be evaluating both frameworks. I’ll come back a few weeks later with my observations.
