AWS Certified Solutions Architect and Puppet Certified Professional. DevOps at a German bank & Founder at myaiden.co
I implemented Scrum for various teams and helped startups and large organizations succeed in the cloud.
Agile is the go to framework for software development teams and startups. But agile is not easy and there are some things like culture that can hold you back. Let's discuss how to get agile right for your team!
As Amazon AWS Solutions Expert I am a certified professional in the field of services provided by Amazon.
I brought companies like HRS.com to the cloud which resulted in round about 1500 virtual machines and other services used.
Lead by example and just use the software by yourself. The best example of this happened with one of my clients where the guy who implemented Atlassian Confluence helped everyone format the pages right and just constantly put all notes and documentation in there. It didn't took more than a few weeks for a corporate (!) environment to adopt to this new Wiki engine.
Zend Framework 2 is one of the most used Frameworks out there standing next to Symfony 2/3. For example the Magento Shop Engine is based on Zend Framework 1 as well.
This said Zend Framework 2 is a good choice for web applications in general and there are lot's of developers out there. Zend.com even offers certifications as Zend Framework 2 Certified Architect - so you can use their Yellowpages to find capable developers.
Anyways I would not recommend to start creating an ecommerce site from scratch since the existing engines provide so much more than a nice frontend for customers and payment gateway integrations. There are many existing engines you can customize - what most shops do.
Thanks Christian, your guidance was extremely needed and helpful.
