Few years ago, some of the enterprises were working with different medium and big projects – for example, you were working a Real Estate Portal. It was probably going to be a high-load website application, and you needed to seek some of the best as well as high-performance frameworks for your app. At that time, you did not have that much experience as per your need. You have no prior experience, because you mostly worked with CMS i.e. Content Management System, while working, you sometimes thought that CMS was not a good fit for that specific project, as you were planning to utilize many different non-standard components. However, you never liked working with CMS or Content Management System; because you come to know, it was difficult to manipulate their source code. Finally, you have decided to go for a small analysis and that with the help of Internet. You did and suddenly you have come to know many comparative posts as well as reviews about the cutting-edge solutions, better to say frameworks of that time. When you choose Yii, the decisive factors were no doubt perfect documentation, a load of highly dedicated forum that discussed the popularity and low entry hindrance.
You can call up that you did not have that many issues, and you could “Google” a solution for almost all types of issues you face. Beyond doubt, your code was not that much perfect and you implemented many different things improperly and roughly, but it had stemmed from the fact that you could have lacked experience with the frameworks in general. You could simple not have enough knowledge of more elegant as well as right implementation.
