I am seriously considering going to CakeFest this year. Madrid is not too far away to fly to. The event takes place over the weekend, so work stuff can be easily arranged. And it doesn’t cost too much – a 2-day conference with the 4-star hotel is only $480 USD (early bird prices until July 15th). That alone is a good deal.
But looking at the schedule, it’s even more tempting. The upcoming CakePHP v3 coverage, advances queries, testing, debugging, profiling and optimization, using CakePHP with Composer, Twitter Bootstrap, Travis CI, Selenium, AngularJS and more – these are just some of the subjects that will be covered. And the speakers are on par including core developers, community leaders, and otherwise interesting people.
