Software developer here; currently working for a small company (there are 6 of us) doing web application development using LAMP, mainly. We concentrate mostly on PHP and MySQL, with some Perl thrown in (plus DHTML and all that).
My skillset in software runs far beyond PHP, though; I've been coding in one form or another for over 25 years - I've played with everything from Logo to Lisp (interestingly, I have yet to try Algol, Snobal, or Ada - not sure there is much point, though).
Despite being a software developer, I still enjoy it once I get home; the Arduino, electronics, robotics, and virtual reality are all hobbies to me, right now, and likely always will be. I am attempting to gear things up to launch a small business for robotics development (cleaning up my shop is the first step - ugh), but for right now, it is all play and experimentation.
I am married, and I don't have any kids, nor do I want any. I have a modest house that is (more or less) "paid off", and no debt to speak of. I wish our energy costs were lower (we're working on that; we just got new doors and windows installed, plus extra insulation, and that has helped things immensely with our energy bill).
I have found the Arduino to be fun, and most of the time, a relaxing and educational pursuit. I am always learning new things about it (thanks to everyone on this forum!)...
