Building the model

As you ought to know by now, i'm currently discovering the MVC pattern. For someone who wrote few php websites in procedural way, i can hold the Controller and the View concept. The View is the templating part. The Controller is the old index page I used to code with the switch case instruction which would include the correct php script depending on the HTTP request. Plus, the coding / relationship of the View and the Controller are obvious while using Zend Application. It’s maybe too obvious but we may want to see this bound later. But then : What is the third part of the MVC pattern ? What is a Model ??

The Dark Knight Rises

Batman Begins. The Dark Knight. The Dark Knight Rises. With this last chapter, Christopher Nolan puts an end to his Dark Knight trilogy. Needless to say, this sequel is a long awaited movie. Around me, most people was despising Batman Begins and the very same are crowning its sequel The Dark Knight. Hopefully, we can expect this third opus to be even better...
