Today, I have started on CodeIgniter, one of the powerful PHP frameworks recommended by Rasmus Lerdorf CodeIgniter is most often noted for its speed when compared to other PHP frameworks. In a critical take on PHP frameworks in general, PHP creator Rasmus Lerdorf spoke at frOSCon in August 2008, noting that he liked CodeIgniter "because it is faster, lighter and the least like a framework". Read more about it here. So far what I can tell you is that it really is FAST. I have been coding in CakePHP and Zend Framework, but this framework is very fast. Truely speaking I did not felt any difference using it. I will keep posting about my experience of CodeIgniter.
