Yii also includes a special Query Builder object…that you can use to query the database…without using SQL.…There are a number of databases that are supported,…but there's also extensions you can use…for accessing Sphinx, Redis, and MongoDB databases.…There are a number of other concepts that you should learn…in terms of how Yii organizes code…and what's available to you.…Everything is organized around modules.…These are ways to add related functionality…within an application.…
Each module will have its own controllers and views.…Yii supports the use of extensions in Composer,…
