This post is the second part of my introductory text on Zend Framework, Starting with Zend Framework. This time I cover the basics about controllers, actions, view scripts and view helpers. On request routing and the Front Controller I will write one (or more) big post(s), so this part won't be explained now. I will also skip explaining the models; they deserve their own post.
He goes a step further and looks at Controllers - what they are and some intro steps to you making one of your own - and the parts around them, the views, actions and view helpers.
