Hi, I'm a devloper new to the Boston area. I currently work as a UX Developer for Optaros, and am looking to get connected with the Boston developer community.

Rate your overall experience with Web Development (Beginner, Proficient, Expert, Not a Web Developer)

Somewhere between proficient and expert. I find that thorough understanding of best practices & underlying concepts is more valuable than how many lines of code you can crank in an hour.

Rate your experience with PHP (Beginner, Proficient, Expert, Not a Programmer)

I guess I'd say proficient, for a UX dev. I don't know all the really deep, granular details of PHP, but its structure and syntax are so similar to C++ and JavaScript that I'm completely comfortable programming in it.

Which of the following technololgies are you planning to learn in the near future? PHP, jQuery, HTML5 (Include Beginner, Proficient, Expert for each)

No answer yet

What topics would you like to see in a future Boston PHP Meetup?

Nothing comes to mind yet. I'll have to absorb some more knowledge from the meetups and then get back to you on that :-]

How did you find or hear about Boston PHP? (Please be specific)

I heard about the meetup tonight through a co-worker, Steven Kosakow, who thought I might be interested in the presentation tonight from Pivot Labs. I am very much interested.
