Video: What you should know

This course was designed with the assumption that you have a working knowledge of the PHP language and have written a couple of scripts. Without this background you might not have enough context to follow along with what I'm doing, which will make it harder to enjoy and learn. For some background or a refresher I recommend PHP with MySQL Essential Training with Kevin Skoglund here in the lynda.com online training library. Also, the use of object oriented PHP is required for this course. If you're not familiar with it, check out Object-Oriented Programming with PHP, here in the lynda.com online training library.

If you'd like to learn more about MVC frameworks in general, take a look at MVC frameworks for building PHP web applications with Drew Falkman here in the lynda.com online training library.

It covers a number of key structures and techniques. Then goes into a brief survey of many different frameworks including CakePHP, which is the sole subject of this course. Finally, it's good to know where to find the manual. CakePHP has a comprehensive community edited book known as the CakePHP Cookbook. It's available at book.cakephp.org in many formats. Additionally the CakePHP API is documented at api.cakephp.org.
