Thank you for uploading a set of tutorials!
Although I’m not a English speaker, this is very easy for me to understand!

@dennis3380 Codeigniter is an excellent framework. It’s very easy to use and is simpler than Cakephp is. I wouldn’t say Cake or Codeigniter is better than the other. I chose Cakephp because of its built in ORM (it handles all table relationships for you and pulls in related data on queries, this is the main reason I chose cake), ACL, and the Auth component.

I recently found out about CakePHP and I am so amazed with its capabilities. I would like to thank you for helping me setup Cake. Very good tutorial.

@prince143 I don’t use a mac everyday. I believe the majority of things should be the same. All of the cakephp specific file settings such as the database.php file, the core.php, security.salt, cipherseed should all be the same regardless of mac or pc. You’ll probably have a different php/mysql/apache environment than WAMP most likely MAMP or something similar. Let me know if you have any problems and I’ll see if I can help.

Great Video maite. Thanks for doing this. I had a “paid” tut but yours is much better! Would be great if you can do some of the more advanced features and get into ajax as well as cloud farms in future videos!

Thanks again man!

@travesurahouse Sorry about that. I knew nothing about making videos or setting up a screen recorder when I made these videos or how to get good quality. Since they were readable I posted them and as you work through my videos you’ll see the quality increases as I learned more. You should still learn from them just fine. Good luck, cake is a lot of fun to work with.

@damlemail -> Are you kidding? This tutorial is great… helped me out quite a bit while deciding what framework to begin with… The tutorials are perfect… Get off of your high horse!!! Andrew is extending his knowledge to you for free and you have the nerve to criticize his speaking methods? He’s a damn developer… you can’t expect him to be a public speaker also.
But hey, I am sure he is truly sorry for not keeping you thoroughly entertained by changing his speech patterns.

Hi, I am learning CakePHP and I found your tutorial very easy to follow and crisp.

A couple of tips on improving:

– Your commentary (although very worthy in explaining things) gets a bit monotonous and low pitched. To make it interesting, you could vary the tone, pitch, mood and speed of talk. Not a lot, just a little. Check out the style of speaking of Kai Ryssdal on NPR Marketplace. He is excellent.

– You could use a bit of humor in the content you show.

Thanks for all the help!

@ivolol Correct, but if I start the tutorial off using cakes bake right away people don’t understand how to install manually, where to change things, how the model/controller/view interact or understand the most commonly used methods. I think it’s best to teach how it all works, then teach how to automate it all using bake once you understand it. I will be covering bake in video 10 which will be uploaded hopefully sometime this week.

Also it’s useful to know how to build a cakephp tutorial from its shell. This will do database setup through the controller, and initialise settings like the security salt automatically.

1.3.1 should work exactly the same as 1.3, you should be able to just replace it
