MySQL is the only database engine I have ever used, but I have yet seen a driving reason to look into others. I have set up and maintained dozes of MySQL databases, and am capable of writing custom MySQL queries of all kinds.

Indigo

Indigo is a minimalistic PHP 5.4 framework that takes inspiration from Drupal and Kohana. It is the distillation of many projects that I have worked on, and shows the full range of my PHP capabilities.

Corporate Intranet

During my time at BDI, I built and maintained a large corporate intranet that managed over 7,000 clients and 500 employees (as of Nov 2011). The system was built from scratch on a custom PHP framework that was heavily modified over the years to handle the changes in requirements. The system started as a pure PHP / HTML system, but incorporated XSL in 2008 when I began to use that heavily. The system allows both employees and clients to log on to view their status, post support tickets, view notes and many other features.
