What do you do with PHP?

My first work with PHP was a technology grant at CSC assessing the feasibility of LAMP as a dev platform. I, later, spent much of my 10 years at the AFL-CIO as a Sr. Web Developer using PHP (along with Cold Fusion, against MySQL and Oracle). I currently carry out development work on the site that I co-own, The bulk of 2013 for me has involved implementing the site redesign that recently went live. I am presently looking to shift direction and am seeking DC-area PHP web development work.
