My boss recently mentioned wanting to use Business Catalyst more and I hoping that there is something left for the programmers to do, maybe like programming extensions and tools that the designers can use.
Because really, there doesn't seem to be any well-defined development processes enforced in my job and I'm betting that PHP application design is better picked up from work than on hobby projects. I know I can bring more to the company and have mentioned picking up on PHP frameworks so that we can streamline the process for custom sites more.
On the other hand, I've been also told by another programmer that for PHP, the "floor fell off that market around 2005" and the demand for custom PHP programming work is declining, because as far as just knowing the syntax and configuring Apache, people aren't impressed by it anymore. He asked about my programming, if it was agile, and was it in cloud, and if it used cloud services like Chef, Puppet, Amazon Web Services, etc. I never used any such services in any of the PHP jobs I've had.
