The Zend Developer Zone has posted an interview with one of the presenters at this year's OSCON, Laura Thomson. They discuss topics like how she got into programming and what she focuses on in her job.

While at OSCON, I had the privilege of talking with Laura Thomson. Laura is the Director of Web Development at OmniTI. Together with husband Luke, she has written 2 books for SAMS publishing on PHP; "PHP and MySQL Web Development" (currently 3/e) and "MySQL Tutorial". She joined the OmniTI team in August of 2005 and moved to the United States in January of 2006.

She was kind enough to sit down with me and talk about PHP, OmniTI and other interesting topics. Here's what she had to say.

Specifically, Cal asks questions about why she chose to get into PHP, how she ended up at OmniTI, a bit about the company and her role there, and some general questions about her personal likes and dislikes surrounding technology today.
