Re-imagining CakePHP: The path to 2.0

Graham Weldon

on Wednesday, 24 November 2010 13:30 - 14:30 in room Room 2

An engaging presentation detailing the design and community driven decisions behind the development path of CakePHP 2.0.
CakePHP has been popular and successful for over 5 years in the PHP community, and the development towards the next big release of 2.0 brings with it some extensive changes. These changes were approached with the community in mind, but also with best practices and a desire to push the community forward as PHP matures into the language it has become in PHP 5.3 and beyond.
This talk is not only useful for CakePHP users, but for anyone thats interested in the development and evolution of open source software and how certain development and management decisions are made.'s picture
