Screencasts for CakePHP beginners

Published on and tagged with cakephp  screencast

Last weekend, David Golding has published on his site three screencasts which are especially interesting for people new to CakePHP. The titles of those screencasts are: “Installing and Setting Up CakePHP”, “Running Cake Outside Root”, and “Using Scaffolding and Bake”.

Additional screencasts produced a while ago (some without sound) can be found on

Enjoy them :)

    This is great news. Too many people are put off Cake by the sparse documentation. We just need to get them hooked with easy entry stuff like this…

    @voidstate: The documentation has become better. But of course it doesn’t hurt to have more of it…

    Thanks for pointing me towards those videos. Google brought me here and you pointed the way to what I really wanted. Those videos need to be on the CakePHP site.

    @Stephen: You are welcome! And yes, it would be useful to have those videos on the official website, however, looking at the date of this post I doubt it will happen…
