In this talk I'll be covering some of the new features that have come out in
3.4. Features like PSR-7 support, new plugins give us more flexibility and allow CakePHP developers to tap into code from outside the CakePHP community. I'd like to follow up a recap of the present, by reviewing the strategy, high-level roadmap and upgrade path we have planned for 3.5, 3.6 and 4.0.

The talk was insightful. Mark did a good job in making all of us understand how the framework is evolving, what things are to be deprecated, the upgrade process, etc. I had attended your session in Amsterdam as well. My only suggestion is to include an appeal/motivational slide to more contributors in your "framework future" type talks :) Otherwise a fantastic job!

I found this talk really informative and fascinating, even though it was also somewhat depressing at times for me because of my personal situation with a huge 2.x app.

A well paced talk with good flow from past, to present and future. I enjoyed learning about the challenges that the core team face when thinking about maintaining a large open source project, and how their choices will impact their users.

Very interesting talk! Also, good reminder about how one can depend on CakePHP as a framework and how good they are about support and handling BC. Good insight into their roadmap.

Useful and well structured. We're planning to continue using CakePHP for years to come, so this is important for us to know.
