    What's Your Job?

    Hello. I've decided to launch myself into self employment properly, but I'm not sure what I want to do. I know I want to work with PHP, but I'm wondering whether It'd be a better to pick a topic, like commerce websites, so I can learn everything about it and reduce the competition slightly, opposed to becoming a general programmer knowing little bit about everything.

    If you specialize in one topic of PHP, what is it?

    I actually work as a Business Associate with DubLi Network. I really enjoy the working there, and it's given me a lot of fringe benefits such as TIME! on top of a great income. This gives me time to follow my own pursuits and money to see the world. Like the song goes, there's such a lot of world to see
    all the while!

    Are you sure these are PHP specializations?

    Yeah so anyway, I'm a freelance web-designer and studying photographer. Would like to get more into the photography later this year.

    PHP has no topics. It's programming, period. If you want to be a PHP programmer, you have to be a PHP programmer.

    If you perhaps are confusing terms and want to be a web development business that caters to specific types of business only, then you can be one. But it goes beyond just programming, and frankly, if you have to ask this question, you're better off outsourcing the programming part.

    I'm a contract assassin on the weekends, and a web designer during the week. I mostly design, not much of a programmer

    I'm the tea boy.
    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    You are already mentor material.

    You have to be a coffee boy too if you want mentor! The tea will only satisfy the brits.

    I'm trying to learn both .
