PHP 4/5, and Drupal CMF - I know them really well, have long experience of programming web-sites from scratch, programming sites with drupal 5,6,7, writing custom features (and, ofcouse patching bugs) in some PHP based proprietary applications and writing non-web applications in PHP5.
Django - And Django itself as an extrordinary web framework, and Django+DjangoCMS in some cases ( typical case - moving really big sites to django: you have to deal with huge amount of well structurized content and often with huge amount of previouse CMS's user generated content. CMS is used only for easy pages, seo, menu manipulations, but all the main content is served by normal django apps and cms_plugins (which are very close to views). It seems to me funny to find out a good approach to deal with different concepts/technologies inside one project - it gives a really valuable experience and (sometimes) nice solutions.
Python and Jython - If I've said 'django' I have to say 'python' and 'jython'. Python is really light and powerfull language. Jython is a nice ( and may be even successfull ) try to make world more pythonic :)
Language translation theory and its practical implementation. Unfortunaly I have only basic knowledge, but I try to find out more, because I think that it's very principal aspect for any who tries to write code.
"The limits of my language mean the limits of my world"
said Ludwig Wittgenstein.
I absolutely agree to him and also I know that computer languages are subset of the artificial languages, which are subset of the natural ones.
