CakePHP makes building web applications simpler, faster and require less code.
Records live every Wednesday at 12:30pm Eastern / 9:30am Pacific / 17:30 UTC.
Hosts: Aaron Newcomb and Randi Harper. CakePHP makes building web applications simpler, faster and require less code. Build Quickly - Use code generation and scaffolding features to rapidly build prototypes. No Configuration - No complicated XML or YAML files. Just setup your database and you're ready to bake. Friendly License - CakePHP is licensed under the MIT license which makes it perfect for use in commercial applications. Batteries Included - The things you need are built-in. Translations, database access, caching, validation, authentication, and much more are all built into one of the original PHP MVC frameworks. Clean MVC Conventions - Instead of having to plan where things go, CakePHP comes with a set of conventions to guide you in developing your application. Secure - CakePHP comes with built-in tools for input validation, CSRF protection, Form tampering protection, SQL injection prevention, and XSS prevention, helping you keep your application safe & secure.
