<p>Over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to be at this year&rsquo;s <a title="PHP Uk Conference 2014" href="http://phpconference.co.uk/" target="_blank"><acronym title="Pre-Hypertext Processing">PHP</acronym> UK Conference</a>, in London. One of the highlights for me, as a Zend Framework developer and evangelist, was Gary Hockin&rsquo;s talk on <a href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/i9klpji4os53u90/Maximising%20Performance%20in%20ZF2%20-%20PHPUK.pdf" title="Maximising Zend Framework 2 Performance">maximising Zend Framework 2 performance</a>.</p> <p>Whether you&rsquo;re new to Zend Framework 2, or an old hand (<em>can someone really say they&rsquo;re an old hand after such a short period of time?</em>) the talk covered a range of tools, tips, and techniques for increasing application performance.</p>
In today&rsquo;s post, we look at more HTML5 Form fields in Zend Framework 2: Month, Range, Color, Week and Number, as well as element properties and attributes. Come look around more of the great new elements available.
In today&rsquo;s tutorial come and learn the new HTML5-specific form elements available in Zend Framework 2. You&rsquo;ll learn how they work, how to use them, what they look like.
<h2 id="synopsis">Synopsis</h2> <p>Zend Framework 2 comes packed with an assortment of new features and functionality and greatly streamlines how common scenarios, such as interacting with datasources and application configuration and caching are implemented.</p> <p>Whether it&rsquo;s <a href="http://www.masterzendframework.com/tutorial/zf2-html5-form-field-introduction" title="Zend Framework 2 – The New HTML5 Form Fields">the new HTML5 form elements</a> and view helpers, the new implementation of <a href="http://framework.zend.com/manual/2.1/en/modules/zend.http.html">Zend\Http</a>, the Service Manager, the Event Manager or that <a href="http://www.masterzendframework.com/tutorial/zend-framework-2-modules-the-applications-heart">Modules are now first-class citizens</a> - you can&rsquo;t help but see that it&rsquo;s bursting at the seams.</p>

It may not be as fast as the previous series, but with respect to development, there&rsquo;s so much going for it it&rsquo;s worth shouting about.</p> <p>So it really is rewarding and exciting to begin covering all that it has to offer us. In <a href="http://www.masterzendframework.com/articles-2/zend-framework-2-core-concepts-understanding-dependency-injection">part one of this series</a>, I looked at a central concept of the revised framework - <strong>Dependency Injection</strong>.</p>
To master the Zend Framework 2 we need to understand its core concepts. In this series, we work through four of the core ones, starting with Dependency Injection. Join me today to get started learning all about DI.
