WEBINAR: Zend_Layout and Zend_View Enhancements

March 19, 2008 - March 19, 2008: Your computer via Webex

Just as we strive for optimal reuse, organization, and clarity in our code on the backend of a web application, it's just as important to maintain those same tenets with respect to the  view layer or "design & presentation" side of a project.  The problem of maintaining a consistent look and feel while encouraging best practices is what Zend_Layout, as well as the Zend Framework 1.5 Zend_View enhancements, attempt to solve.

In this Webinar we will cover:

    * The problem of consistent look and feel in an MVC Architecture
    * Zend_Layout and the "Two-Step-View" - solution to the problem
    * An example of configuring and using Zend_Layout with both the MVC components as well as standalone
    * An example of configuring and using the new Zend_View Doctype and head*() Helpers
    * Use cases and examples of when to use Action, Partial and Placeholder helpers for complex views
