Building dynamic websites is a passion that I have for a long time. Making software/web sites run with an optimized database design, great content, usable user interface, proper marketing and getting tons and tons of web traffic has always been the dream.
That dream led me into the world of dynamic web language such as PHP, JSP, ASP, ASP.NET etc and database design with MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server. I volunteered myself to do free work for my uni and was offered instead a casual position (even better since I get paid) and I have to say that I spent some of my most productive days learning and applying what I learnt.
Even after switching job to an engineering software company, my passion for web development has in fact grown instead of being let down (as can be reflected with my frequent blog posts about the topic, creation of wordpress plugins for personal use, creating new websites with cakephp etc)
Thinking about it, I had really spend lots of time programming in with PHP. Some of them productive, some of them not. I can do better. It became really obvious to me that it’s a good time to get my skills recognized by getting a certification in the latest PHP 5.3. Today, I have set a goal to pass this exam within the next 30 days. I want it and I’ll make sure I get it.
Wish me luck. I will report back on how I do in the exam.
