I am starting to learn how to develop websites on Yii Framework, one of my major goals is to create a classifieds website on Yii like craiglist but, overall I want to learn how to develop any website on this awesome framework.
I been reading a lot about it and for what I read to start with Yii, the best thing is to follow the following books:
Agile Web Application Development with Yii1.1 and PHP5
Yii 1.1 Application Development Cookbook
My question is very simple, is that right? am I missing anything at all to approach my goals?
Those books are helpful, but not required to learn Yii. The best way is probably what Kiran said: read the guide and check out some Wiki articles. Just start developing and solve problems as they come up. Eventually you’ll understand how the framework works.
