The framework has very short learning curve, so anyone can start using it efficiently in less than 3 hours.

PHP DEK is influenced by other PHP frameworks, Java-based ones and mostly by ASP.NET and Borland Delphi. It tries to get the best of the above platforms as well as to avoid some problematic parts. Basically it:
  • Brings the elegance of Java and C#
  • Relies extensively on OOP concepts
  • It's not only for hardcore PHP developers, you can use with very little knowledge in PHP
  • Provides extremely easy way(Widget API) to integrate 1000s of free widgets
Code-behind approach is used, so every webpage consists of 2 files:
