Don't forget to attach the message to the list.
Regarding the frameworks, which of them, for your opinion, will take the
fastest time to learn and get into code?
Generally speaking if something is fast to learn it is also the first to run
out of steam. If it doesn't have more features than you can learn in five
minutes the it doesn't have enough features to do anything useful, or with
any degree of flexibility.
I changed the subject because I did not want to steal Nitsan's thread.
There seem to be a ton of frameworks, one-click installation web
applications, the latest and greatest wiz-bang applications out there.
I find myself extremely reluctant to dig into these code sets. It seems
when I do attempt to use one of these pre-coded applications I end up
eventually wanting to modify the code outside of the original extent of
the project. Invariably I get frustrated and end up wishing I initially
begun the development from scratch. Employers seem to be wanting me to
have experience with all kinds of 'gimicky' solutions, but I am
reluctant to be constantly learning new applications (that i'd prefer to
rewrite myself). Am I just being hard headed and reluctant to change,
or is my stance justified? I suppose the answer is the middle-path.
That is, read some new projects, take the bits I like, leave the bits I
don't, etc...The problem is this isn't very marketable. But I suppose,
the proof is in the pudding. What a banal way to end an email, eh?
What are your thoughts in regard to these two forces: wiz-bang
frameworks vs. raw php development?
