I have been doing PHP for to long. I started in Perl, and then wandered into PHP because I was interested in web apps. Except that I have learned over the years that PHP is well organized, breaks it's own syntax from time to time, limited to web apps (well, it's clunky for anything else) and is really a hacked version of Perl. So I want to get back to my roots.
It's been years, so I might as well be a beginner. But I'm one of those guys that learns best with a big project in mind and I learn the components I need as I go. I may consider web apps, but I think I may want to try on a local app with a GUI (what do we prefer these days? tk?).
So what's a good project to consider?

As a Landscape Architect, I create welcoming and habitable spaces. As a Photographer, I strive to exhibit the beauties of spaces, even if they are traditionally thought of as "ugly". In either case, it is my goal to identify, define and showcase the elements that humans find appealing.
I am the founder and editor of Shutter Photo Magazine which has been a source of inspiration and learning for hobbyist photographers for over three years. Many of my personal photographic works are available for purchase or for licensing - more information can be found at the official D. Travis North Photography website.
