The initial reason that led me to create this blog was the release of CodeIgniter 4 . This PHP framework was once quite popular. But over the years, its code was considered more and more obsolete by the developer community and its popularity has greatly diminished. This is where version 4 comes in, which is much more modern than previous versions. This new version has been in development for years, as it is practically a complete rewrite of the original framework. The final version was finally released on February 24, 2020, and interest in CodeIgniter has greatly increased. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Lonnie Ezell , the lead developer of this Open Source project.

A lot has changed between CI3 and CI4, so the old tutorials are no longer really useful. The learning curve for appropriating CI4 is still quite significant. There is therefore a demand for documentation and new tutorials for CodeIgniter 4. This is the reason why I decided to create this blog and publish articles to meet this need. Since there are not many resources in French, and it is my native language, so I decided to write in French first. The articles will then be translated into English to reach a wider audience.
