    Yii is a free, open-source web application development framework written in PHP5 that promotes clean DRY design and encourages rapid development. It works to streamline your application development time and helps to ensure an extremely efficient, extensible, and maintainable end product. Being extremely performance optimized, Yii is a perfect choice for any size project. You have full control over the configuration from head-to-toe (presentation-to-persistence) to conform to your enterprise development guidelines. It comes packaged with tools to help test and debug your application and has clear and comprehensive documentation.

    This video course is a collection of Yii2 videos. Each video is represented as a full and independent item, which showcases solutions from real web-applications. So you can easily reproduce them in your environment and learn Yii2 fast and without tears… In this video, you will get started by learning how to install Yii Framework and about application templates, dependency injection container, and model events. You will also learn how to use the external code and how to update your yii-1.x.x based application to yii2. Then, you will see some handy things about the Yii URL router, controllers, and views. The course then proceeds to discuss the three main methods to work with databases in Yii: Active Record, query builder, and direct SQL queries through DAO. Then we will see the working of Forms in Yii and how to keep the application secure. We will look at creating our own controller filters, preventing XSS, CSRF, and SQL injections, and using role-based access control. Later, you will learn to write RESTful Web Services using Yii2. Finally, the course ends by teaching you to install and use official extensions in your project.

    This course will show you how to easily get started, configure your environment, and be ready to write web applications efficiently and quickly.
