Zend Framework

You can develop web projects faster with the Zend Framework

Zend Framework is – like Symfony, for example – an open source framework and an object-oriented web application framework for PHP 5. Using Zend Framework lets you speed up the development time of web projects, keep costs low and built high-quality and strong systems. Most tasks required in a web site are available in Zend, from forms to email up to search functions. Zend Framework is sometimes referred to as a “component library” because it contains many individual and loosely connected components that you can use more or less independently. The Zend Framework also provides an advanced model-view-controller (MVC) implementation, which can be used to create a base for your own Zend Framework applications.

The Zend Framework offers developers many benefits

The Zend Framework is very open and can therefore be used with own development environments or with other frameworks. This is especially helpful if one decides to use a different technology but would still like to be able to access some components. One of the biggest innovations the Zend Framework 2 brought with it was the event manager. This component was so important for the development of Zend Framework 2 that it was even backported into Zend Framework 1. With the new component it is now possible to not only easily to step into the MVC process, but also to expand upon own classes and services.

In summary, the advantages of the Zend Framework: the community is very large. The company offers their own forums and assistance. In addition, there is also a large network of freely accessible forums, blogs, etc. that you can rely on. And: online shop systems like Magento use the technology. Zend provides various web services and functions to support online trading. The Zend Framework is especially useful for developers if medium size applications need to be built, if you want to save time – especially when programming standard tasks – if there are budget constraints but the quality should still be high and if the developer places high value on good maintenance.
