In a new post on his blog today, Paul Jones mentions a framework that might bridge the gap for ASP developers making the move over to PHP, Prado, and some of the issues that more traditional PHP developers might see around it.
An old buddy of mine wants to start using PHP, but the problem is that he's been working with Microsoft technologies for so long, he doesn't get "the PHP way". His background, for many years, has been with ASP.NET, COM, and those sorts of things.
As it turns out, there's a PHP framework out there that maps well to "the ASP.NET way": Prado.
He talks about how the framework is structured and what non-PHPers might find to like about it, but he also wonders if the phrase "the PHP way" might be better replaced by a more definitive term to describe the way most PHP develoers prefer their apps to work.
