Cakephp is a framework with lots of functions and methods used to develop php projects. It has a lot of functions including methods that perform a lot of things. This framework was designed to speed up web projects by eliminating a lot of nitty gritty stuff such as having to to link the database properly to be able to process data from and to the DB.

Cakephp is the solution to a lot of unanswered questions. For one is consists of php which as most of you know is a widely supported web programming language and is standard with most web services providers.

Starting web projects is a pain as some of you may have experienced in previous occasions and Cake has made that process a lot more easier and a lot more faster. To put things into perspective by just designing your database schema and a few lines of Cake code you can have a working system that is fully capable of writing/editing/retrieving and deleting data from your database. Cake uses a method called scaffolding that generates all the code required to communicate with your database.

I for one am using Cake on a Linux OS and its works great fast and efficient. Wouldn’t you like to spend more time improving your product and less time actually building it ? Not to say the building part is less essential but everyone always has their doubts about a new system where as they gain more confidence once you tell them about the new improvements impemented on your system.

Cake uses a method called Model-View-Controller (MVC) where Model handles all your database interactions, Views for all your output and displays on the site and Controllers for all your commands/scripts for input and the flow. Cake is good for Create Read Update and Delete (CRUD) operations.

Cake also offer helpers and comes in standard HTML, Ajax and JavaScript which simplifies the View process.

With a widely supported web programming language and standard with most web services providers Cake looks like the solution to simplify php development without losing any php capabilities. With a simple getting of the ground approach to help you get your project up and running in minutes Cake is sure to make life easier for developers and the world at large.
