Hi dev community, I'm Ben and I've been (see how that works?) a full LAMP stack developer since 2003. I'm learning Angular right now simply because I like it, the best way to learn is to read and write tutorials, so I just posted a couple and I'm reading more here.

Welcome, Ben! To steal a lame joke, it's always great to have more Bengineers in the community!

Heya! What's it like to still do PHP? I understand the ecosystem has changed quite a bit, there's got to be a lot of stories to tell

Well, mainly we do one of two things now, that is CMS's (WordPress is 40% of the internet, but isn't my "thing", but I have done Drupal, which is 4%) or write REST API's like everyone else (on the PHP side of things) with JavaScript frameworks to consume them on the front end. PHP still makes up around 70-80% of the internet, so there's a lot of us "still" doing it.
