CakePHP - An introductory tutorial
Trevor Adams (https://twitter.com/TrevorJAdams)
"CakePHP makes building web applications simpler, faster, while requiring less code. It is a modern PHP 7 framework offering a flexible database access layer and a powerful scaffolding system."
During this session I'll be introducing the CakePHP framework by way of a worked example. This will be of interest to new web developers considering a first framework for applications. It will be of interest to experienced developers, especially those working on server side code and who might inherit an existing application using the framework.
8pm - 8:20pm
