Zend Framework 2 Certification Open


The Zend Framework 2 Certified Architect certification has been laid down this month. As an open source PHP application framework used by "hundreds of thousands of applications" globally, Zend represents one of the largest project collections of reusable code on the planet.

Featuring over 10,000 certified software professionals worldwide, Zend Certifications are built to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards.

The Zend Framework 2 Certified Architect exam was developed by an advisory board led by Zend Framework project lead, Matthew Weier O'Phinney, and a team of Zend Framework 2 contributors, developer community leaders, and engineers.

"We have heard from many developers that studying for, and obtaining, a Zend certification helps developers improve their skills through the process of exam preparation," said Debbie Otterstetter, senior manager of global training and certification at Zend. "Taking and studying for these certification exams can really help a developer get a wide understanding of the full range of PHP's & Zend Framework capabilities."

Zend has introduced two new certification exams in the last six months: Zend Certified PHP Engineer and Zend Framework Certified Architect.

"PHP, driven by its large developer community and vast ecosystem, has become the platform of choice for developing the backend of web and mobile applications, as well as many business critical enterprise apps," said Ido Benmoshe, VP of global services at Zend.

Zend says it has created a complete curriculum of classes to "expedite the learning process" and all classes are designed and taught by professional, experienced PHP developers.
