Integrating Zend_Tool Into Your Application
This screencast should help you setup Zend_Tool in your Zend Framework application. Zend_Tool is a command line entry point into your application. Currently, Zend_Tool is used to scaffold (build generic files) the Zend Framework project structure, modules, controllers, database table classes and other tedious processes. The goal of this video is to start looking.

Ajaxify Your Zend_Form Validation with jQuery
We're going to take what was put together in the last three videos and now include some server-side validation that will appear asynchronously. This is an example of using Zend_Form as a validation tool via JSON.

Encapsulating Business Rules with Zend_Validate
In this video, we're going to work on building a custom validator for our composite form element for phone numbers. The nice thing about this validator is that it can then be applied to any sort of textbox. Next week, we'll ajaxify our final form with a handful of lines of jQuery.
zc51-encapsulating-business-rules-with-zend-validate-desktop.mov (54.1 MB)
Preparing Custom Elements for Zend Validators
This is part in my litte series on Zend_Form will cover how to prep our composite form element for standardized Zend_Form validators. This will help lead us into building a Zend_Form validator for our phone element. It might help to start with episode 49.

Zend_Form Decorators Explained
One of the pain points for folks who are starting to work with the Zend Framework is the Decorating functionality found in the depths of Zend_Form. I've witnessed countless instances when a developer becomes excited by Zend_Form's easy-to-implement form validation and creation, only to become frustrated by countless hours of fighting with Zend_Form_Decorators. This video [...]

Introduction to Zend_Mail
A big thank you to Ryan Horn for putting together this great screencast about Zend_Mail. Ryan took the time to talk about how to setup a dev environment that uses a gmail account. This is perfect for folks like myself who work in a development environment that's behind an annoying ISP firewall on SMTP (port [...]

Logging in Users using Doctrine and Zend_Auth
Here's the second part of my Doctrine / Zend_Auth example. In 15 minutes, we create a logout, login and protected area that's reliant on the ZC_Auth_Adapter adapter we created in last week's video. Notice how there's no code in the IndexController exposing the authentication implementation,

Writing a Zend_Auth_Adapter with Doctrine
I've been using Doctrine a lot in my own work, and recently found myself itching to have tighter integration between Zend and Doctrine when it comes to user logins. Luckily, Zend provides a very simple interface with regards to Zend_Auth. This way, it's easy to decouple your persistence layer (in my case Doctrine) from the [...]

Deep Integration between Zend and Doctrine 1.2
There's been a lot of talk online about finding the best approach for bringing Zend and Doctrine 1.x together. This video is my humble approach of combining some of the learning brought about over the last few weeks on Zendcasts, as well as suggestions from Doctrine developers.
zc42-deep-integration-doctrine-1.2-desktop.mov (80.4 MB)
Doctrine Relations and Data Fixtures
This episode of zendcasts will cover how we can write Data Fixtures and extend our data model to include a simple one-to-many using Doctrine's schema.yml file. I also noticed in the code of my last example that Model loading wasn't working properly. I cover the fix in the video, however I'd like to highlight it.
zc40-doctrine-data-fixtures-relations-desktop.mov (54.2 MB)
Writing Doctrine Unit Tests with Zend_Test
Building on the Introduction to Doctrine 1.2 video, this video will show how you can easily test the persistence of Doctrine models within the Zend_Test environment.
I also touch briefly on how to setup the latest version of MAMP with phpunit.
zc39-writing-zend-tests-with-doctrine-models-desktop.mov (47.2 MB)
Introducing Doctrine 1.2 Integration
By popular demand, I've put together an introduction to Doctrine 1.2 integration with the Zend Framework. Doctrine is a fantastic ORM (object-relational mapping tool). If you've jumped from NHibernate or Hibernate and are itching to have a powerful tool for handling database relationships, Doctrine is probably your best bet.
zc38-integrating-doctrine-a-2-into-zend-desktop.mov (75.9 MB)
Introducing Zend_Translate
One of the big things that the Zend Framework has over other frameworks is the built-in locale and language tools provided by Zend_Translate and Zend_Locale. All this comes with plugins into Zend's templating system via Zend View Helpers. This video covers setting up some language-friendly routes, writing a custom language switcher Zend Controller Plugin and [...]

Moving Bootstrap Code to Configuration
We're going to build on what was covered in the last video and work with Zend Controller Plugins to specify a special layout for each module in our application. We'll also look at how we can clean up the configuration of our Bootstrap.php file by moving as much configuration as possible into the application.ini file. [...]

Protecting Assets with Zend Controller Plugins
I had to take a little hiatus the last few weeks, however I'm hoping to get back into a weekly posting schedule.
This video is an introduction in how to effectively use Zend Controller Plugins. The Zend Documentation refers to Zend Controller plugins being part of the Action Stack which is a simple data structure that can be filled with a bunch of plugins which will run in succession.

Using Zend_Cache to speed up Web Service calls
A short video showing how you can test and implement Zend_Cache on a class that makes a really slow request (like a web service call).
This is part four in a four part series on Google Docs and Google maps. While this example shows how to cache a Class to a file.
zc34-implementing-zend-cache-to-speed-up-web-services-desktop.mov (79.5 MB)
Using Google Maps with Zend_GData
This episode will wrap up the google docs series. You can start with Part 1 and Part 2, or jump straight into this one. With our persistence layer (the Google Docs Spreadsheet) and unit tests around geo-targetting addresses completed, we'll tackle the view and try and visualize our data using the Google Maps API.

Custom Action Helpers for Firebug
I'd like to introduce Tawfek's sequel to his video covering Debugging in Firebug with the Zend Framework. If you're looking for a tutorial on how to write a custom Action Helper, or wishing to make your ajax development more robust with logging and profiling, then these 33 minutes will save you a pile of googling.
zc32-debugging-zend-projects-with-firebug-part2-screen.mov (114 MB)
Geotargetting with the Google Maps API
This video will is part of a multi-part series on looking at how we can leverage some of Google's API's to build a fancy mapping tool that's driven from a Google Docs Spreadsheet. If you haven't worked with Google Docs or Zend_Gdata before, I suggest you take a look at the video introducing Zend_Gdata and the Google-Zend libraries. This video looks at how we can build our own very simple web service adapter for Google's geocoding service.
zc31-geotargetting-with-google-maps-web-service-screen.mov (151.8 MB)
Debugging Zend Projects with Firebug
Tawfek is back! This is part 1 of a two part series where Tawfek will be taking us through how Firebug and the Zend Framework can work together to provide non-intrusive debugging and accurate profiling information for an application. This is a great feature that every Zend Developer should know about.
zc30-debugging-zend-projects-with-firebug-screen.mov (57.4 MB)
Introduction to the Google Docs API
This video is going to be first in a small series looking at how we can integrate a small handful of the many Google APIs into a Zend Application. We'll look at using a google docs spreadsheet as a data store and have it talk to your zend application through a small collection of unit tests. In following videos, we'll start using the maps API for geocoding and finally plotting people to places using the Google Maps embeddeble map.

Zend Acl with Authentication and Reflection
This video tutorial is going to look at how we can build a simple authentication mechanism with Zend_Acl with complete unit test coverage. I wouldn't say that this is entirely the Zend way of doing things since we're not using Zend_Auth, however it would be relatively trivial to create a Zend_Auth Adapter for each of [...]

Getting Started with the Zend Framework and WAMP Server
This Father's day, zendcasts is doing two videos back to back! There's been a bit of talk in the comments about how to setup the Zend Framework on Windows. Thankfully, Tawfek Daghistani took some initiative and put together this short piece on setting up WAMP Server with Zend.
For a first time doing a screencast.
zc27-getting-started-with-zend-framork-on-wamp-server-screen.mov (32.4 MB)
Introducing Zend_Acl
There's been a lot of talk on Twitter about doing some videos about Zend_Acl, so by popular demand, here's part one of a two part series about Zend_Acl.
I'm going to do this with the unit testing framework we setup in the last video tutorial so that I can focus on the meat of Zend_Acl.
zc26-introducing-zend-acl-screen.mov (76.2 MB)
Unit Testing with the Zend Framework with Zend_Test and PHPUnit
I have to preface this video by saying that I'm still a bit of a novice when it comes to unit testing (especially in Zend). Also, I feel that I wouldn't be able to take credit for the whole implementation.
Here are some great resources on unit testing in the Zend Framework to beef up your [...]

Zend_Navigation - creating a menu, a sitemap and breadcrumbs
This tutorial covers a lot of the basic use cases with Zend_Navigation. Using a uri-based navigation.xml file, we generate a very simple menu system as well as a breadcrumb with some basic information. In the last three minutes I cover how to get a Google compliant sitemap from the navigation.xml file. This video is by [...]

Many to Many with Zend_Db and Zend_Form
Exposing many-to-many in a practical application took a little more time and effort than I had anticipated. With that in mind, I to use this opportunity to explore how Zend_Form, Zend_Controller and Zend_Db could be integrated. This is the first in a two part set looking at our data model.
By the end of the [...]
zc21-many-to-many-with-zend-form-and-zend-db-part-1.mov (116 MB)
One to Many with Zend_Db
This is part 3 in the Zend_Db series. I'm only scratching the surface with what you can do with Zend_Db_Table classes, however starting is often the hardest part. I've posted the code once again on the Google code for this episode, so please don't be shy and grab a copy.
There's a lot of discussion over [...]

Integrating Bits on the Run into Zend
This video covers a web service that I've been using lately called Bits on the Run. The service has fantastic support (with even the famous JW from the JW Player offering assistance if needed) and good documentation. If you want to build a web 2.0 app with video and aren't interested in managing the encoding [...]

Writing a REST Web Service & Client With Zend_Controller
so here's my makeup video for last week's absence. It's a little on the long end (nearing 40 mintues), however in my defense, I'm trying to cover a lot of ground. The video covers how you can build a very basic JSON web service with some private key authentication. I think that I muddled through [...]

Using SVN with a Zend Studio Project
The folks at Zend were kind enough to offer me a license for Zend Studio and since I'ma fan of where the project is going, I'm excited about using it here. The advantage here is that I can cover some things like Unit Testing in a consistent manner in the videos to come. That's [...]

Zend_Config_Ini and using Zend_Http_Client with Twitter
This podcast is a two-parter: Zend_Config_Ini and Zend_Http_Client (). While the two classes aren't married together in the video, anyone serious about writing an API to their web application will need to access the API differently in development, staging and production environments.
We also take 10 minutes and 4 lines of code to work with the Twitter [...]

Zend View Partials
This screencast covers Zend View Partials, an often overlooked portion of the Zend_View_ * collection of classes, however, I've found them super handy when writing complex templates. Running time is a little under 10 minutes.
zc14-zend_view_partials-screen.mov (20.3 MB)
Zend View Helpers with AJAX
This is the second part of last weeks tutorial. Here we add some JQuery code and look at how Zend_View_Helper_ * classes can be written in such a way that they behave the same when they're invoked on the server and called asynchronously via an AJAX request.
zc13-zend_view_helpers_with_ajax-screen.mov (56.5 MB)
Introducing Zend View Helpers
This video covers how to setup and user Zend View Helpers. I also cover how state is managed within the class. Next week I'll show you how you can use this technique with a bit of AJAX to make those View Helpers shine! I'll post the project code for both videos with part 2.
