I went in to work yesterday morning to find out the sad news that the contract I had been hired to work on had been canceled last week. The company tried to find work for me, but was unable to do so. I am now another casualty of the struggling economy. It’s a shame, but I understand that the “last in first out” principle of employment, and I understand the business need.
The company was generous in the severance offered, and there is no malice towards them for what happened. As of today, I’m officially back on the open job market, and I’m looking for work as a PHP developer.

Today is my last day at DC PHP. I received an offer from The Bivings Group two weeks ago that was impossible to refuse; they’re two blocks from my current residence and they offered me a considerable salary increase. But still, I will miss DC PHP.
I’ve learned a lot here in the past eight months, about development, about how to design well, and about how development should be done. There is still much left to learn, but the lessons I have learned here are beneficial and important.
