Started with php3 back in '01, moved through 4 and into 5. Have worked with Joomla, Wordpress, X-Cart, osCommerce, AJAX implementations, and a plethora of other technologies and frameworks. (X-Cart uses Smarty as an aside)
freelance with a day job in development as well.
Been working with PHP since 2001, and finally tested for, and acquired, my Zend PHP Certification in January 2010. Working toward my Zend Framework Certification now.
