On the Ibuildings techPortal today they've posted the latest episode of their recording series from last year's Dutch PHP Conference (DPCRadio) - Sebastian Bergmann's talk The Cake is a Lie.

Scaffolding, the meta-programming method of building software applications, promises easier development and a faster time-to-market. But the "code generation bliss" can lead to problems later on, for instance with regard to maintainability and scalability. This sessions takes a skeptical look at frameworks such as CakePHP and symfony.

You can listen in one of three handy ways - either by listening in-page, downloading the (rather large) mp3 or by subscribing to their feed to get this and other great techPortal content.
