I've been developing web sites using PHP/MySQL since about 1997 (I've owned computers since 1981, though, and have been programming and hacking since then). I'm self-taught, because when I started, there weren't any schools offering any sort of PHP instruction (at least not in the Seattle area). The sites I have developed have been primarily my own sites, but I have done quite a few sites professionally for others.
Most of my non-tech work experience has been in the entertainment industry, both in music and film & television.
I am currently using Mahara in a non-academic setting for a social networking web application and have modified the code extensively. I have created a group, Mahara Non-Academic Development Group, for others who are using or are interested in Mahara for non-academic use.
