Meet the Author

Forrest Lyman is a passionate PHP developer who concentrates on content management systems (CMS) development. He developed the Digitalus CMS on the Zend Framework, progressing from version 0.1 through 1.5. Once Zend Framework reached its production release (1.0), Forrest released Digitalus as an open source project.

Over the course of the project, he developed a wide range of sites based on the CMS, from small business sites to international non-profit and university systems. Working hands-on developing these sites with the Zend Framework has given Forrest a unique perspective into building extensible CMS systems with Zend Framework.
