Meetup Talk on CakePHP 3.0: The Cake Isn’t a Lie and It Tastes Delicious

I gave this presentation last week at the Las Vegas PHP Meetup, covering some of the new features in CakePHP 3.0. It was a fairly short talk focused mostly on showing off code and some examples of what Cake 3.0 is looking like along with trying to answer some of the questions that I commonly hear inside of this group regarding CakePHP vs. every other framework. The sample project that I built is on Github.

As I give these presentations and watch other people give theirs, I am trying to reflect on them and figure out what works and what doesn’t. One thing that worked for the most part was not trying to write any code during the presentation, instead my idea was to flip through tags in the git repo between hey I did x and look what x did. This wasn’t actually a bad solution but not great. It had the flaw that because I had some changes along the way getting the repo actually working correctly, ignoring tmp folders, etc, when I tried going to a tag and back I would up having to delete changes and basically reset the repo in the process. So partial credit there I think.
