Using Require.js with CakePHP

Using Require.js with CakePHP

The CakePHP framework provides excellent tools to structure and organize server code -- making development fun and maintainable. Combining these tools with a solid Require.js implementation can elevate the often haphazard front-end development experience to the same level of excellence.

This talk will give a very brief overview of Require.js and it's benefits. It will outline a typical Require.js "Hello World" implementation. This will be followed by a more robust implementation for projects that are backed by CakePHP and have thousands of lines of javascript.

The talk will end with notes on configuring the Require.js optimizer to combine and minify the source for deployment.
