I'm a lightweight developer, and so far I use PHP to modify WordPress themes and plugins. I have played with the command line version of it on my PC.
I'd like to get comfortable connecting PHP to MySQL and I would like to learn to develop with classes and methods.
I help small businesses and solopreneurs get started on the web. I'm interested in expanding my skills, so I'm adding PHP to my toolbox. I primarily work with WordPress, but I'm open to adding new things to my arsenal.
If you are looking to improve your skills as a PHP developer, this is the place to be. Talented people with a lot of web development experience are willing to share tips, tools, and traps they have encountered. It's a great way to shortcut your development.
