The Hulme Ramblings of a web developer

15Oct/110

Hello world!

Decided to start blogging about work I'm doing in my personal time; more so I can record what I am doing and what I have learnt than for entertainment to the WWW.

With my day to day job I am a heavy user of Kohana and WordPress. But it is about time I started to jump on the Zend Framework bandwagon.

My starting point is going to be jumping in at the deep end and building my brother a website complete with custom CMS to showcase his Photographs, with him being a keen photographer.

Today I started with the Quick Start GuideĀ http://framework.zend.com/manual/en/learning.quickstart.intro.html and I must admit, having used Kohana for over a year now, it does come across that Zend is trying to be complicated for the sake of it. Or it could just be a misleading quick start.

Anyway in the end I got it working with no real problems. I had to make note of one of the comments explaining how to set the Database to be MySQL rather than SQLITE.
