CakePHP and Events with AJAX and MySQL (Part 1)

I recently had a customer that needed an event display system. (They’re not paying me, and non-profit, so I feel ok putting this tutorial here). They wanted to have a nice pretty calendar that displayed when certain events happened. I had also decided early on to use CakePHP and had a fairly fleshed out site at this point, so I just wanted to add in another MVC that I could use. This is actually quite easy, thought it takes some setting up, so here is how I did it.

NOTE: This tutorial assumes you have an Acl controlled application, and know how and when to get these things to work. I will explain when things need to be done with ARO/ACO, but not how. Also, I borrowed the design heavily from this calendar tutorial
