On the IBM developerWorks site, there's part one of a new series that combines the latest version of the Zend Framework with the power of Google applications to create a custom web application.
In this three-part "Create a productivity package with the Zend Framework V1.5 and Google applications" tutorial series, we will build an application with Zend Framework V1.5 that uses the Google applications. Here in Part 1, we explore the various features of the Zend Framework, outlining the many new features in V1.5 that we will take advantage of to build an example Web site.
This first part introduces the Framework briefly and helps you create some simple controllers and views. They use the Zend_Layout to help with the output and show how to implement view helpers to make components for the pages. There's no connections to Google in this initial part - that'll come later on.
You'll need to register/login to get to it.
