To help even more people get aquaintd with the Zend Framework, Rob Allen has created an impressive guide to getting started with the framework.
The Zend Framework is now at version 0.1.5, so it's time for me to have a go at writing a getting started guide! This tutorial is intended to give a very basic introduction to using the Zend Framework to write a very basic database driven application.
The guide [pdf] briefly covers what the MVC architecture is before moving into the hows, whys, and whats of the Framework itself. He explains:
- the directory structure,
- setting up your first model/view/controller set,
- styling the site,
- using a database,
- working with POST and GET vars
