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.
