At this year’s CakeFest I gave a lighting talk titled “Projects Are Better When Maintained”. Essentially, it was a complaint to be a better maintainer of the open source stuff that you put out. It went over really well and I got some good feedback from it.
CakeFest is the official conference for CakePHP. Thanks to my work with Smartfield in building and launching CropInsight I’ll be attending CakeFest this year in Chicago from September 2nd through the 5th.
CakePHP is a fantastic web development framework that I absolutely love working with every single day. CropInsight is a web application built using CakePHP, jQuery and a whole lot of sweat and time. Not only do I work with CakePHP for my full-time job, I also use it for personal projects, it’s a great tool for PHP developers. Trey Reynolds and I will get to spend time learning more about the inner magic of Cake and hopefully helping the core developers of Cake learn more about one of their users.
