  • Impressed

    After going through the tutorial I’m really impressed. Zend seems to have developed something really good here. It’s easy to pick up, really clean, and it’s pieces can be easily used independent of each other. Nice.

  • zbap

    The Zend Framework is an excellent piece of work. I will highly recommend its usage to anyone
