PHP Study Group Meetup (Weekly Chapter Review)

We are thankful to CPC Strategy for providing the space for us to do our PHP San Diego Study Group at their offices every week.

The group will be reading one or two chapters out of a more advanced PHP book every week and going over chapter by chapter with each meetup until we've gone through the whole book and move on to the next.

    Yes, I'm not sure what we'll go over. I don't know if anyone has put much work into looking at Laravel. I got it setup, but I haven't had time to do much with it.

    I've had a little exposure to Cake, Zend, Laraval and Codeigniter. Cake has a lot of functionality but it is also pretty complex. Zend is very difficult to learn and use and is poorly documented. Laraval seems to be developed by one person and it's going thru so many changes it's klughy and it doesn't seem well documented .. it's also not used much in the real world. I would recommend CI since it's the cleanest, easiest, most well documented and I think the 2nd most used in the real world behind Zend. It doesn't have as much functionality as Cake or Laraval, but it's a good first MVC to learn. I was able to download CI and get it going and read thru all it's documentation pretty quickly and I can't say that about any of the other MVC's.

    So are you saying you may not work on Laraval at tonights meeting ?

    I agree, Laravel seemed a little complex but I thought it was just me. I am going to take a look at Cake PHP when I get a chance, that one seemed a bit easier. They also have what seems to be a good guide with a project: http://book.cakephp.org/2.0/en/getting-started.html

    Laravel might not be the best choice for us to start with. We could possibly look at Cake PHP too.

    In my opinion Laraval is not a good choice for this group. It is complicated, poorly supported, poorly documented and is klughy .. other than that it's great ;) .. I may not attend since I feel Laraval is too complex for me and it isn't used much in the real world yet.
