There are some great videos on youtube that also helped me alot in learning

Yii Document and forums helped me a lot.

Also check out Larry Ullman’s “The Yii Book.” He’s currently updating for Yii2.

  1. First of all, watch the video tutorial of the Yii2 framework by David Connely on YouTube.

  2. Then switch to Doing It Easy channel.

  3. Then come to the documentation.

For Portuguese speakers, you can access my blog.
