  1. Nice tutorial on Yii. It is great to see someone publishing quality content on the framework. We have been working on an open source CRM application that is written in PHP utilizing JQuery, Yii, and RedBeanPHP and relies heavily on test driven development.

    Zurmo might be one of the most complex projects on Yii to date. Right now, we have 1000+ unit tests running across eight server configurations. We utilize selenium as well for a nice set of functional tests too. It would be incredibly helpful to get your technical feedback and recommendations so that we can improve the application. Take a look and let me know what you think:
