I want to build a project in a PHP framework that I can learn relatively fast

Does anybody have any suggestions? I was taking a look at CodeIgniter but it seems like it isn't under active development and is a bit out-dated.

If you do have a favourite (and simple) PHP framework, do you have a good resource for learning it?

You may want to take a look at Laravel, http://laravel.com/ It is a newer framework with very active development and a great community.

A great resource for learning it is https://laracasts.com/ put together by Jeffrey Way.

Great, thanks Adam! I'll take a look. Hopefully I'll be able to pick it up in a day or two.

Just following up with you, Adam. I'm a few hours into playing with Laravel and Blade, and I love it already. The idea of Master Pages blew my mind!

That's good, I don't use it myself, but I have a lot of close friends that do and love it.
