Well, we have covered a lot of ground. You should now have a good foundation from which to launch your Yii projects.
Of course, this has been limited to the basic fundamentals, the minimum necessary, thus the Quick Start. There is a lot more to learn. Fortunately, there is also not a shortage of documentation covering each of these basic concepts in detail.
Forthcoming will be a second book that will delve into the inner workings of some of the concepts we have covered. These topics will include:
- In depth coverage of working with Data in GridView and DetailView including search, sort, custom values and custom actions.
- Using custom sql queries and more advanced Active Record solutions.
- Model Rules in depth -- create custom rules, comparison rules and scenarios.
- Passwords and encryption.
- Working with cookies and query data.
- Model/DB table relationships.
- Lot's of useful tips and tricks that will save your hair.
Until then, I wish you well and encourage you to participate in the Yii community.
Let's do this!
