Site Design


This site runs on a LAMP based system employing the CakePHP MVC framework, to lets face it, do all the donkey work for me.

The system is running :

  • PHP5
  • MySQL4+
  • CakePHP 1.2

Why CakePHP?

I have been playing around and building sites with CakePHP since the 1.1.X days and have been following it through its progression into 1.2, like wine its getting better with age.

Apart from giving my PHP code some much needed structure the MVC approach allows you to break your code into logical sections allowing you to easily follow the programs flow. It also breaks the program into smaller chunks meaning you don't get bogged down in working out the programs detail every time.
