Why do you have not considered teaching a php framework like CakePHP?


Friends of Treehouse, Why do you have not considered teaching a php framework? like a CakePHP, because for a new learners is most difficult to programming php in hard code.

Other thing is mostly of Ruby On Rails fans try to compare Ruby On Rails against PHP and that's a mistake, but they may compare Ruby on Rails and CakePHP.

We have considered it, and we're planning to offer a course on a PHP framework in the future!

Thanks for the quick response,

I think the example should be Treebook, enable to new learners compare the two technologies.

Randy actually am viewing your PHP Course. =)

I truly believe in PHP, I am programming since 2003 and am teaching at [Universidad del Norte]((http://www.uninorte.edu.co) in a Web Development course since 2008.

Thanks for hear us GJ

If you're going to teach a PHP framework wouldn't it be http://laravel.com/ ? since it is inspired by Ruby on Rails. But CakePHP or CodeIgniter would be cool too.

Still waiting on CakePHP courses.
