"Turtles the whole way down" is a jocular expression of the infinite regress problem in cosmology posed by the "unmoved mover" paradox. The metaphor in the anecdote represents a popular notion of the myth that Earth is actually flat and is supported on the back of a World Turtle, which itself is propped up by a chain of larger and larger turtles. Questioning what the final turtle might be standing on, the anecdote humorously concludes that it is "turtles the whole way down".
I fell in love with programming way back in the 80s after my introduction to the Apple IIe and Apple BASIC. I've been writing code personally and proffesionally ever since.
After 16 years of developing mainframe software, which turned out to not be a great career choice, I rebooted my career and switched to developing for the web. I consider myself to be primarily a back-end developer as this more closely resembles my previous experience but I do enjoy working on front-end code as well.
I intend to keep coding and learning as long as there is code to be written and new things to learn or until the singularity.

Bikeshedding - the term was coined as a metaphor to illuminate Parkinson’s Law of Triviality. Parkinson observed that a committee whose job is to approve plans for a nuclear power plant may spend the majority of its time on relatively unimportant but easy-to-grasp issues, such as what materials to use for the staff bikeshed, while neglecting the design of the power plant itself, which is far more important but also far more difficult to criticize constructively. It was popularized in the Berkeley Software Distribution community and has spread from there to the software industry at large.

PHP is a widely used server-side scripting language created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994. While PHP originally stood for Personal Home Page, it now stands for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor", which is a recursive acronym or backronym.
As of January 2013, PHP was installed on more than 240 million websites (39% of those sampled) and 2.1 million web servers.
Software development is more than just writing eligent code. During my development career I have worn many hats including: Database Architect, Documenter, Test Writer, Quality Assurer, Project Manager, and Team Leader, Team Morale Booster, and Volunteer.
