Looking Ahead

If you've read through the entire "Getting Started" chapter, you have now created a complete Yii application. In the process, you have learned how to implement some commonly needed features, such as getting data from users via an HTML form, fetching data from a database, and displaying data in a paginated fashion. You have also learned how to use Gii to generate code automatically. Using Gii for code generation turns the bulk of your Web development process into a task as simple as just filling out some forms.

This section will summarize the Yii resources available to help you be more productive when using the framework.
