Hey everyone,

I'm learning how to use cakePHP framework. I'm just wondering that how one gets so familiar with a bunch of API's quickly. Do people memorise them at all? I ain't going to because I don't see the point in memorising some things that I even won't need to use ever. What is the best way to go about familairising myself with new API's?


You have two options.

  1. Is to always have the documentation to hand, i.e. opened in a separate web browser.
  2. Google code completion for cakePHP with your favourite IDE.

Sometimes I use a global keyboard hook, for example, in windows I might use shortkeys.
