Chapter 3. Backend Development

Creating and managing restaurant reviews is our component's largest task. We will add forms and database functions to take care of this so that we can start adding reviews. The backend forms will be built according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern, to keep our source code clean and organized. Developing the backend now will give us the chance to gather feedback from our restaurant reviewers. Designing this interface will carry us through the following topics:
