    I've never tried it because I've heard bad things about it. The main thing being bloat ware and slow.

    I have used applications built on the zend framework and they have been terribly slow and clunky - namely magento (community edition)

    Frameworks also have a learning curve and force a development methodology. The app I'm building at the moment doesn't fit any of the mainstream framework methodologies so I'm rolling my own so that each tier can be powered by the same codebase and be aware of what's happening
    I said I didn't like ORM!!! <?php $this->model->update($this->request->resources[0])->set($this->request->getData())->getData('count'); ?>

    Tried it, didn't like it. Bloated, slow, and a memory hog. But that's mostly the MVC half of the framework - the other utilitarian half is pretty decent (as least the parts of it that you can decouple from Zend_Config and the like).
    My idea of a framework is something you utilize in your site, to avoid dealing with common problems and situations. Zend's idea for their Framework is more about building your site around it. And God help you if you only want a couple of its features.

    You use it but don't like it? By choice?

    Some clients have existing sites built on it, so in those cases I use it.

    Not for my choice but it’s depended upon client requirement. As per my experience, Zend Framework provides much required “face-lift” to PHP and facilitates powerful solutions for building modern, robust, and secure websites. It enables the separation of business logic from user interface design. Databases supported include IBM DB2, MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL and SQLite.

    Thanks that is very insightful, so Zend framework is like the rails framework in that the idea is you build your site around it. I'm learning ruby on rails myself for the additional option seems a lot of employers out there are looking for ruby on rails developers through my strong suit right now is definitely PHP.
    If my post answered your question please give rep.

    Zend is not not the only framework for PHP.

    The only framework I've never heard anything bad about is Code Ignitor

    Never used it because I heard it was quite slow (will try it someday though).

    Coffee is an IDE? Damn, then I've been doing that horribly wrong.
