If you are trying to decide which language to learn and are considering Python or PHP, probably the biggest challenge in picking a language is weighing the difficulty of the language vs. the value it brings you as an employee.
For those of you whom don’t know what either is here’s a description.
PHP is a general-purpose server-side scripting language that originally was designed for Web development to create web pages multi dimensional. It is some of the first developed server-side scripting languages to be embedded into an html source document rather than calling an external file to process data. The code is interpreted by a web server with a PHP processor module that then generates the web page.
On the other hand python is a high-level general purpose programming language. The code emphases readability and the syntax is clear and expressive. Python contains a large and comprehensive library. Supports multiple programming paradigms, object oriented, imperative and functional programming. Python is often used as a scripting language, but is also used as a non-scripting contexts. Using third-party tools, Python code can be packaged into standalone executable programs. Python uses dynamic typing and a combination of reference counting and a cycle-detecting garbage collector for the memory management. Something important about it is that it has dynamic name resolution or late bindings, which binds method and variable names during program execution.
