Hello, I know there is a lot of people trying to learn PHP here, so I wanted to share this with you.
There seems to be a very small amount of newbie friendly tutorials for most frameworks and the learning curve can be a bit high. So to start off you can take a look at the PHPixie framework
that is very easy to learn and provides a lot of awesome features. There is even a 30 minute tutorial for your conveniance: PHPixie Tutorial
so I hope you like it =)
