    Extra tip: To prepare yourself to use other frameworks in a job, look at how they lay out their application directory structure.

Slim is a microframework with minimal extra features, so it may be a good starting point to compare with if you wanted to (, and they have a skeleton app you could use to examine its structure ( People will probably also happily fight to the death about which framework is better, but you find one you like or a company you want to work for uses. Slim is just a suggestion.
