My First Impressions of 'Convention Over Configuration'

My current project is in CakePHP, and my recent projects were in Zend Framework. I had an idea that CakePHP champions convention over configuration and I would make a funny face as how convention can manage the complexities.

But after a few days of working on CakePHP, I'm beginning to appreciate the simplicity, the ease with the assumptions allow the tasks to be completed. More so, since it saves developer effort :)
