to use or not to use a framework
Hello and Good Day! I have a quite a solid understanding and experience with php from college and here at treehouse. Do i still need to learn and use frameworks like code igniter, zend, laravel etc... ? Is it a must for a php dev?

You are not obligated to use a framework if you don't want to, but many think it's a must since it makes your life easier while coding and eliminates the need to come up with helper functions since they are already coded.
I prefer clean code, so I went without a framework for the last 10 years and I'm still here hehe.
