      Comments Off on CakeFest 2008 Announced

Nate Abeele wrote me yesterday to let me know that the “CakePHP”: group has officially announced their first Users Conference. CakeFest 2008 will be held February 6-8, 2008 in Orlando Florida, US.

The conference is sponsored by “The Cake Development Corporation”: and “Sypad”: and will be held at the “Imperial Swan Hotel”:

bq. With the recent launch of CakePHP 1.2 beta, the Cake world is now more active than ever. What better way to keep up with the latest than joining CakePHP’s core team and prominent developers in three exciting days of CakePHP programming talks.

They have a “mailing list”: you can join to get regular updates and their “Call For Papers”: is still open so you can still propose a session.

If you program using the “CakePHP”: framework, I know you won’t want to miss this event.

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PCs.   For the past 10 years, Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.33, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP
