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

I've been developing with PHP for about 6 months. I come from ColdFusion and ActionScript 3 with enought C# to make me dangerous.

What got you interested in PHP?

Our department moved its main site to Drupal and they looked to me to get good at PHP to help in the future development. I decided to move all my projects to PHP.

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

Using the best practices and OO style coding I am used to. Want to get proficient with PDO verses using MySQL drivers. Also getting into securing my site from SQL Injections and XSS


Hello, my name is Wally Kolcz and I am a web application developer for the University of Michigan Health System's Public Relations and Marketing Department. Also lead developer for PetPal Manager, a web based animal rescue and shelter record manager.
