LAPHP January Talk: Zend Framework 2.0

  • Jan 15, 2013 · 7:00 PM

For our January LAPHP talk we have pretty exciting guest -- we invited Ralph Schindler from Zend to talk about Zend Framework 2.0 (aka ZF2).

Zend Framework 2 achieved its stable release this autumn, ushering in a new era of the framework. During this hands-on talk, we'll look at the pillars of ZF2 application development, including the Event Manager, Service Manager, and Module Manager, and give you a taste of how applications can be built from existing re-usable modules and customized to your needs.



1Ralph Schindler is a software engineer, one of the developers on the Zend Framework team which is a PHP5 OO MVC framework.

He has been using and programming in php since 1998 and in 2007 became a Zend Certified Engineer.

Ralph currently resides in Austin, Texas and will be coming to SoCal specifically to give this talk.
