For Andrew Ballard — How did you settle on CakePHP as a framework? Reply

Andrew Ballard CREATOR on April 24th, 2015

Hey thanks Chris, it's an old favourite of mine - I'd been using it since it was in it's early stages. It's the most MVC/RubyonRails-like of the PHP frameworks. A lot of things it just does for free, or with a single line of code. And after 5 years, there's now a really decent community and great resources to help find out the tricky questions!
