<h1>The Big Q&A</h1>

<p>It's been almost a year since the 1.0 release of Zend Framework. In that time we've seen some of the most trafficked sites in the world deployed on ZF, many popular enterprise-oriented projects built with ZF, and some of the greatest times ever had (while coding) using ZF. Since our community has been so great in giving back to the project, we decided it's the Zend Framework team's turn to find a new way to give back.</p>

<p>On <a href="http://www.zend.com/en/company/news/event/webinar-zend-framework-the-big-q-a">April 30, 2008</a>, Zend's very own Zend Framework team will make themselves available for a 2-hour Q&A session. You can submit your questions in advance here to give us an opportunity to think them over a bit, or you can surprise us with them during the webinar. In any case, expect to find out more about ZF while getting to know everyone on the team a little better.</p>

<p>Please feel free to submit questions anonymously.</p>

<p>Please register for this webinar <a href="http://www.zend.com/en/company/news/event/webinar-zend-framework-the-big-q-a">here</a>.</p>

<p>See you there! </p>

    <p>Do you plan to add more support for unit testing - similar to rails for example?</p>

  4. Apr 23, 2008

    <p>With great documentation on how to use each component by itself would Zend be willing to release/develop example enterprise level applications to community members which really show the synergy of the components working together along with an example of what ZF can do at its best?</p>
