About PRADO

History

PRADO stands for PHP Rapid Application Development Object-oriented. It is an event-driven and component-based framework for PHP 5. The very original inspiration of PRADO came from Apache Tapestry. During the design and implementation, I borrowed many ideas from Borland Delphi and Microsoft ASP.NET. The first version of PRADO came out in June 2004 and was written in PHP 4. Driven by the Zend PHP 5 coding contest, I rewrote PRADO in PHP 5, which proved to be a wise move, thanks to the new object model provided by PHP 5. PRADO won the grand prize in the Zend contest, earning high votes both from the public and from the judges' panel.

Since May 2006, PRADO has moved to a project website at www.pradosoft.com. The site you are viewing here is preserved for memory purpose.

Thank you for all the support!   -- Qiang
