How long have you developed with PHP and is it your first programming language?

I started using PHP in 2002 after using FoxPro and C# as a procedural scripting language to perform trivial actions on webpages, and have evolved and grown into an employed PHP Developer using OO techniques and testing.

What got you interested in PHP?

What keeps me coming back to PHP is the flexibility of the language and the ubiquity of it. There are so many communities and resources and so little roadblocks to deployment.

What's your next challenge or thing you'd like to learn about PHP?

The sky is the limit, but specifically at this time I would like to continue to mature in my Test Driven Development practices.


programming was my first job and second love (after hockey) when I started at 14. I've sinced worked for small,medium,and large companies, as well as myself, bringing ideas to life and solving problems for businesses using PHP and other languages.
