I've been a PHP developer for more than ten year, that loves to keep up with technology and write some really elegant software code to help my sites handle large scale and many users. At the last site I worked on (a dating site, Feb 2007 to May 2009) I was member #75,000, and a little over two years later with member #320,000 the site was faster, more secure and used less server resources. From Dec 2009 till Jan 2011 I helped Binweevils (a PHP-backed Flash game for 7-13 year olds) grow and optimise their systems to be able to serve more than double the previous records of members online on a regular basis, and setup so that doubling again is not only possible, but easy to put into place. Not easy when you are dealing with literally thousands of concurrent users playing online.
