CakePHP is a Piece of Cake!

I’ve recently become aware of how behind the times my skills are , in particular if you write PHP you are expected to use a framework . I’ve chosen CakePHP and have installed it on my local Apache Server with a few permission hiccups. I’ve then completed the create a blog tutorial and it’s stunning how easy it is. It uses the MVC or Model-View-Controller system for development. To quote their documentation it CakePHP takes the monotony out of web development. We provide you with all the tools you need to get started coding what you really need to get done: the logic specific to your application. Instead of reinventing the wheel every time you sit down to a new project, check out a copy of CakePHP and get started with the real guts of your application.

    If you’re in the mood of trying out new stuff, I’d pop in the suggestion of trying out Propel ORM as well; but I don’t now how hard it would be to incorporate it in CakePHP. (A non issue in other frameworks I’ve used).
