2 and 3 I really enjoy coding and think of it as an art form. Alot of people consider languages to be an art so i think coding is, simple really.

1/3. I got started because I wanted to make my own site. I do our corporate intranet, many apps for the army, and i've done several websites on the side.

I'm a hobbyist only. Whenever you do something for a living, you cease to enjoy it as much.

1, 2 and 3... That's a first!

Unfortunately, I have yet to study PHP in school, but I do believe there's an OpenSource Web Solutions course available... It'll be interesting to see what's taught!

PS: Whoever said coding wasn't an art is completely wrong... Take a lookat JXL's answer, and you'll see why!

It's a hard way to make a living.
But I'm always looking to learn something new, better, whatever... as long as it gives me an advantage, or another tool to offer my clients.
p.s. don't everyone think i'm an expert, and start asking questions, cause i came here to learn...

1 and 3.

I actually make my living (and a fairly good one) programming PHP. In fact, it's my PHP skills that have gotten me where I am today (along with that piece of paper from school).

It's quite funny, I have actually been able to turn down full time jobs doing PHP.

Lots of work out there for PHP programmers.

Jason,

Is it all self-taught, or did you learn PHP in school? Btw, I see you're in Montreal, what school did you go to? I've got a few friends who are in school in Montreal as well...
