Talk: Faster application development with CakePHP 3.0
CakePHP has come a very long way for its 3.0 version. The core team has put a lot of emphasis on keeping the pragmatism and development speed always as a priority, so we have translated years of personal experience in developing applications into framework features we can all benefit from.
This talk will show how to get from zero to a fully functional, highly customizable application prototype using CakePHP and the Crud plugin. A big part of the presentation will be showcasing the abilities of the new ORM and the capabilities of the framework to do functional-style programming when using the collections library.
Speaker: José Lorenzo (CakePHP Core Member)
I’ve a web developer for more than 12 years and I’m currently one of the CakePHP lead developers. I’ve been contributing to the framework since 2009 and I have help lead it through several transformations and modernizations. I’ve always been attracted by complex problems and elegant solutions and I’m also a relational databases lover in the inside.
Currently I work at Bownty, a young startup that is already Europe’s biggest for its market segment. We specialize in delivering to our users timely suggestions on experiences or travels at a discount. Most of the site’s architecture is built upon many CakePHP web and cli applications that talk to each other over the network.
We got some awesome stuff to give away this month, so make sure you attend another awesome meetup!
This month we will be hanging out at the Harver offices. Its their first time hosting, so welcome them into our sponsor family!
