“Learning the Yii Framework” Series Updated

The Yii Book If you like my writing on the Yii framework, you'll love "The Yii Book"!

Over the past two days I updated all eight posts in my “Learning the Yii Framework” series. The series was originally begun in June of 2009, starting with version 1.0.6 of Yii. A fair amount has changed since then, particularly the switch from using the command-line tool to using the Web-based Gii to generate code. So I reviewed all of the writing and code to make sure it was up-to-date with what users will see when developing with Yii today (current version: 1.1.4). The introduction of Gii was the largest change, although a while back Yii also switched from a “list” Controller method with a “list” View file to “index” and “index”; also “show” became “view”. And the Zii extension of widgets are now used extensively (um…pun).

Considering the popularity of this series, I’m not thinking of self-publishing a complete Yii guide (depending upon how I feel after self-publishing a JavaScript book).
