Effective background processing with CakePHP

José Rodríguez

It is well known that in order to speed up your web applications, it is a good idea to differ as much as possible any heaving processing to the background.

Many talks focus on how to differ the work by using process queues, but few actually go in depth on how to effectively create your background tasks.

This talk will cover the topics of how to keep processes alive, managing connection timeouts, debugging errors, communicating with other background processes and the use of the ORM and collection functions for processing huge batches of data.

The future of HTTP messages in CakePHP

Mark Story

PSR7 is a new standard for normalizing HTTP requests and responses between the various frameworks. CakePHP is scheduled to adopt this standard in a future release.

In this talk I'll introduce the problems that PSR7 solves, and the concepts behind the PSR7 interfaces. Following that, we'll cover some of the advantages of PSR7 for developers, and introduce the in progress approach we're taking in CakePHP to bridge the present with the future.

PHP deployment, 2016 flavor

Quentin ADAM

PHP runtime have been controversial for years; because hosting is very important due to dynamic and modularity of PHP. So, what’s about opcode cacher? atomic deployment? file system usage? session management? code/data split? PHP VM or built in http server? Or maybe HHVM? So many question we have to answer building php support at Clever Cloud (managing A LOT of php apps on hosting PaaS), and many war stories to share about our choices.

How I built web services in CakePHP

David Yell

Modern applications are more connected than ever and it's becoming more valuable to provide a web service layer in your application. My talk covers how I have achieved this in both CakePHP 2 and CakePHP 3 along with the lessons I've learnt, tools I've used and how I implemented a central web service which powers three different client websites.

CakePHP 3 as a powerful backend API framework

Avinash Joshi

Many are looking to build beautiful mobile and interactive web applications. We all love CakePHP for what it is - a clean, simplistic, and powerful MVC framework!

But with technologies evolving and people moving to build API based applications, we need to leverage the battries that CakePHP provides. In this talk / workshop, I will dive in to how you can enable CakePHP to be used as a powerful REST API, various ways of structuring your project to enable the use of CakePHP with a front-end web application like AngularJS.

Architecting Design Decisions !!!

Viraj Khatavkar

We, as developers many times dive in like a cowboy and start coding haphazardly. We need to take a step back and ask ourselves "Okay ! How do I achieve this so that it will be creative in its form". Before architecting our code, we need to understand the layers in our design. Responsibilities of these layers is the most important aspect, but we tend to confuse the responsibilities. We blindly apply design patterns (mostly because someone else has applied) in our application without understanding it's real concept and the reason behind it's application. We shouldn't include too much of layers, nor should we bloat a single layer. Every layer has their own responsibility and let's try to understand that. I will be covering Application Layer, Service Layer and Data Layer with insights on how and most importantly when to leverage events, commands, repositories or any other similar pattern to segregate our code in these layers. I will also be covering on the ways of architecting our applications according to CQRS pattern which may help us in long term and future proofing our application to some extent.
