Stability. Security. Community. Inside the Aspen grove.



Aspen is a PHP-based website and application development platform that is entirely designed to work as a modular system, allowing you to separate functionality and share those modules with other projects and other developers. A new level of sharing between small time, or enterprise-level projects. Use it for the end product, or develop and entirely new application with it.


In this session we’ll introduce using some of the most interesting features of the Aspen framework. We’ll discuss creating modules and containing functionality within those modules, and sharing them between your own projects, or with other developers. We’ll discuss how you can use, and how we’ve used the framework to create a wide range of amazing tools for clients.
