Frameworks

September 23rd, 2010

Relying on an MVC framework to provide consistency can end up disappointing if it is implemented or maintained badly.   A site that is designed well and coded well will be more comprehensible to subsequent programmers than a badly implemented or maintained framework.  A developer working on your site who circumvents the framework can leave a mess for subsequent maintenance.

There are a good number of frameworks that implement the MVC paradigm and which conform to standards for good coding.  The ZendFramework is the one that we will use if you as a client request an off-the-shelf framework.

All of our site products use an MVC implementation that provides a minimum of structure and a maximum of flexibility.
