For those who have never heard of PRADO before, PRADO is a
component-based and event-driven programming framework for developing
Web applications in PHP 5. PRADO stands for Php Rapid Application
Development Object-oriented. PRADO was initially released in August
2004 and has since been adopted by thousands of developers.

PRADO is best suitable for creating Web applications that are highly
user-interactive. It can be used to develop systems as simple as a blog
system to those as complex as a content management system (CMS) or a
complete e-commerce solution. Because PRADO promotes object-oriented
programming through its component-based methodology, it fits extremely
well for team work and enterprise development.
