I am a strong programmer using PHP, with a solid grasp of both procedural and object oriented style programming. I love to challenge myself (Fizz Buzz was easy, Eight Queens is much harder and I'm still working on it) and can often be found poking around other peoples code just to learn new techniques or different ways to solve the same problem.
Structured Query Language has kept my interest since I designed my first relational tables for a stateful user authentication system. I honestly don't get to utilize my knowledge here as much as I would like, given that a lot of projects with WordPress use it's already robust schema, so I've ranked myself a little lower out of ten just to be fair.
HTML5 with CSS3 (7/10)
I remember when <frameset> was all the rage. I had a page on Geocities with three frames; the header was bright blue, the sidebar was some kind of green acid, and the main content area had bright lava everywhere. CSS changed everything, and HTML5 has kept pushing us forward, but my design skills haven't changed all that much.
