ZF Well Represented at SourceForge Awards

SourceForge will be presenting its community choice awards at OSCON again this year. The Zend Framework team will be watching closely, since no fewer than two (!) new ZF-based projects have made it in to the finals: Magento and Tine 2.0.

Magento has been taking the eCommerce software world by storm. We’ve been hearing a lot about Magento as a well-designed and well-executed software product, but you’ve got to hand it to the Magento team for awesome community-focused resources like Magento Connect. I can only assume they built this stuff with all the development time ZF saved them. ;) Magento is a finalist in the following categories: Best Project for the Enterprise, Best New Project, Most Likely to Change the World & Most Likely to Be the Next $1B Acquisition. Make sure you put in your vote here. Congrats, guys!

Tine 2.0 is another big enterprise-oriented project, but focused on the intranet and collaboration. It’s also a full rewrite of the popular eGroupWare project using Zend Framework to improve maintainability and stability, among other things. Tine 2.0 is a finalist in the Best New Project category. Way to go!

One of our goals in building ZF was to provide a solid foundation upon which other project teams could build great software. I think Magento and Tine 2.0 are proof that we’ve had some impact here. It’s particularly nice to see the warm reception of ZF as a foundation for PHP best practices in the OS community. Who knows? Maybe next year you’ll be able to vote for ZF itself.

Good luck to both projects!
