Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Intro to Yii 2.0 and previous versions, part of MVC Frameworks for Building PHP Web Applications.
- Yii is an acronym for Yes It Is,…and pronounced correctly means…"simple and evolutionary" in Chinese.…This framework was created in 2008…to be a high performance framework.…In it's initial version,…according mostly to their testing…but to a certain extent it was true,…was faster than all the other frameworks…in this course that existed at the time.…Yii is managed by Yii Software LLC.…However, unlike some of the other frameworks…that are managed by corporations,…Yii doesn't offer training or certification…or even really support though you can do…custom development if you like to through them.…
Yii uses the new BSD license which is fairly flexible.…As I mentioned earlier,…it was driven by a need for performance,…so performance is really at the core…of all Yii development.…It's currently at version 2.0,…which was release just in October of 2014.…The previous version, 1.1, is in Maintenance mode now.…Yii aims to do things simply.…As such, it's a fairly lightweight framework.…It's a full-stack framework that was developed…
