Mayflower loves Zend Framework. If we have the choice, we choose the Zend Framework (otherwise, we choose the framework the customer uses). For this reason, we compiled a big poster giving an overview about the most common used components of Zend Framework and distributed it via International PHP Conference and soon PHP Magazin. Currently, the poster is in German. We’re working on an English translation which should be available soon in the next days. If you’d like to have one, just fill out this form – we’ll send you one. Oh, we’re just working on having the poster at one of the online shops so that everyone can get his own Zend Framework poster!
Zend Framework has, like other frameworks, its advantages and disadvantages. However we think that it will be one of the upcoming industry standards that leverage speed and easyness in PHP development. For years, Mayflower has been a big fan of Zend Framework, working with it since V0.9 in its early days. As always, we’re customer minded, that means if a customer prefers other frameworks like Symfony, PEAR, eZ components and the like, we’re happy to go with. But we just believe that Zend Framework will be spearheading the OpenSource PHP framework world.
