    Framework
    CodeIgniter, Zend, .NET

    PHP Tech
    MVC & OOP (slowly starting to migrate)

    Build your own ASP.NET 2.0 Web site - sitepoint

    Platform

    There are so many of these threads already been posted, what would be interesting is what Commercial / shareware products does everyone use (there seems to always be a focus towards free and open source - which is good), it would be interesting to see what software you guys pay for and use on a regular basis.
