Part 1. The essentials – Zend Framework in Action

Part 1. The essentials

The first two chapters of this book introduce Zend Framework. Chapter 1 considers what Zend Framework is and why you would want to use it in your PHP web development process. Chapter 2 builds a simple Zend Framework application that shows how the parts fit together. The introduction of the Model View Controller (MVC) design pattern will bring order to your application and set the foundations for the rest of the book.
