Yii is an open source, object-oriented, component-based MVC PHP web application framework that helps generate complex WSDL service specifications and manages web service request handling. It also supports message translation, date and time formatting, number formatting, and interface localization.

Beginning Yii [Video] covers not only all the essential areas of PHP and Yii, such as installing and configuring Yii on an existing web stack, but it also shows users how to rapidly develop sophisticated and reliable web apps, as well as create working prototypes in a single command using Yii application generators.

This course explores advanced topics in detail and highlights the various techniques to develop applications and manipulate data that follow the popular Model-View-Controller methodology, from various sources with the ActiveRecord class. Furthermore, readers will learn how to test and debug application using PHPUnit and Selenium, as well as deploy an application to a live server environment.
