PHP MVC for Web Application Development

Many applications repeat the common add-view-edit-delete functions, which can be timely to code and repetitive to enforce data rules. How can we speed the process and reduce errors? The Model-View-Controller is a popular paradigm to simplify application development. A foundational principle is the separation of business logic (controller) from formatting (view) and data rules (model). This session will review the principles of MVC, discuss the specifics of CakePHP’s implementation, and identify lessons learned from our own use of it in a student-development environment at The College at Brockport.
