Frameworks, frameworks, frameworks

If you're still rolling your own routines for basic things like content delivery or data access, then you're crazy. For every modern programming technology, there are more than a few frameworks available. It's seems like it's just that time in history. Like the layers from a core sample at the norh pole, the layers of technology represent a view back into the evolution. Even if there are only a few layers (C/PHP/Zend Framework for instance), the principle still applies. The framework I wrote (XAO) will sit along side and be compatible with the Zend Framework. I'm also interested in JavaScript frameworks lately. the YUI and YUI-Ext frameworks in particular. If you haven't seen them, they are amazing. check them out.

The combination I just mentioned (PHP/Zend/XAO/YUI) is unstoppable.
