Learning time: Zend 3
Zend is an open-source full stack PHP framework. The latest version of Zend – 3.0.0 was released in June 2016.
In order to learn Zend, you should have previous knowledge of PHP. So, if you are an absolute beginner, learn PHP basics first and after that start learning Zend3.
The best way to start learning, is to begin with the “Getting Started with Zend Framework MVC Applications” . It will offer you an overview and will help you with the installation. It also provides you with a tutorial for beginners, which will introduce you to the process of creating a simple inventory system from scratch.
It can be difficult for an absolute beginner to understand all the tutorials presented in the above mentioned manual, so maybe Oleg Krivtsov’s book, “Using Zend Framework 3”, will contain much more useful tips, as it focuses on the key information you need to know.
This book can also be of real help.
