Describe your PHP Experience

Programming PHP as a "day job" since late 2003.

Areas of Expertise (PHP, HTML, JS, SEO, etc)?

Back end PHP and .NET (C#/VB) are my bread and butter. Within the PHP world, I'm experienced with Zend Framework, but these days I'm more fond of smaller frameworks like Aura and Silex.

Career Status (freelance, full time, looking, etc)?

Depends on the day :)

What year did you start using PHP?


Which do you count to goto sleep: sheep or elephants?

electric elephants


Eager to network with fellow PHP devs locally.

    Joel - thanks for the greeting about Erlang Chicago. I'm looking forward to it. I've been using Erlang for a number of years (not full-time) for some different projects and going to the conference sounds like a great opportunity. I have not yet been to the MKE Functional Meetup, but would like to attend.
