today I gave a workshop at Skynet Belgacom on how to use the new features in Zend Framework: Zend_Application and Zend_Tool. Also a quick overview on how to use a DAO to separate the database from the model. The DAO and the model are kept very basic so everybody attending the workshop could understand the principle behind such a design principle.
I also gave an introduction to Zend_Auth and implemented a custom Zend_Auth_Adapter_Interface which could have been the Zend_Auth_Adapter_DbTable but that wouldn’t have teached my fellow colleagues on how extensible ZF really is…
Beneath I share the slides from this workshop. If you do it step by step at the end you will have a running ZF application based on modules.
