Speed up your development with CodeIgniter, a fast and powerful PHP web application framework. Author Jon Peck shows how to build a magazine cataloging system while describing how to use a MVC (Model-View-Controller) framework like CodeIgniter.
Starting with the what and why of CodeIgniter, Jon introduces key concepts such as the MVC pattern and libraries by demonstrating how to create static pages, then storing and displaying magazine info in a database. Advanced topics like classes and helpers are explored to validate user input, upload files, and much more. By creating a complete system, you'll have the foundation to build your own applications with CodeIgniter.
Codelgniter is an exciting framework, that I've enjoyed working with. Of course, it's not the only framework out there, but it's one of the fastest ones available. Codelgniter's ease of use is bolstered by it's flexibility. While I will admit I was a little frustrated by it's approach to models, I got around it in moments and bent the framework to my will without breaking it. That's fantastic and that's really what developers need. There's no one right path, and if our framework will get you most of the way, use it. I appreciate your time and your interest in this subject. I'd also like to thank the fantastic production team at lynda.com, for all their hard work behind the scenes.
