The 2 day workshops at CakeFest are an ideal opportunity to learn the internals of CakePHP, and a great way to get up to speed with the latest version of the framework. We’ll be focusing part of the workshops on the new 3.0 code base, helping people get to grips with the new features for this third major revision of CakePHP. Attendees will also receive a personal certificate of attendance from the Cake Software Foundation.


The conference covers 2 jam packed days of keynotes, presentations, discussions and talks on CakePHP and related technologies, plus an array of activities, such as lightning talks, core team Q, the Hour of Contribution and a raffle. It’s a great time to engage and network with the community, learn from other experienced developers, and party with the core team. Plus, there will be cake!
