Hi i have often wondered if there are actually names for different kinds of php coders or is it all or nothing. What i mean is that with the different segments of coding there are certainly people that are proficient in one thing but not another much like the medical field.
In the same sense in just the php field alone, someone might be good at straight forward php but not good at php when it comes to template engines, defining and using all the template vars in the tpl file itself.
So has template engine php become a specialty?
If so what are some of the other specialties in the php field? Class specialists maybe?
If you just know basic php and can code a script without the template engine are you still a full fledge php coder or half of one?
I guess my main question is, is it all or nothing, or are their php specialty fields developing?
I certainly consider myself a programmer but i dont know all the facets of php, or any other language for that matter, does anyone really lol...
Are we going to start seeing titles in signature footers or business cards in the future much like doctors do,
for example maybe
PHP-GC (general coder)
PHP-TPL (template coder)
PHP-CS (class specialist)
PHP-MC (master coder)
and just to be funny here
PHP-HF (headers and footers) like ear nose and throat lol
