    Its actually depend on many things . In this modern era both are going fine . But mostly PHP is used for web site building so you can go for this I recommend you .

    no one said he wouldn't learn another in the future, "brov", just because someone is going to learn one language doesn't it mean another will be in the interest parameter in the later stages of coding.

    As a result, learning PHP has been seen to take more time as compared to learning Python. Time taken to learn a programming language should be one of the most important factors in choosing which language to pick. For beginners, Python is much easier. PHP, on the other hand, can be a bit tough for novice programmers.

    I don't understand why people still thinking about PHP in 2019...
    Even if you want to develop websites you can use great library like Django.
    I never liked PHP and I will never do.

    I completely agree on that, php has lost it's value and languages lika JS is in the top tiers now imo.

    I would definitely pick Python. 3-4 years ago I worked with a guy who was a web designer and WordPress developer and he told me that he is going ro switch to Python. That's when I should have started learning it but I still didn't

    Python is way better, but Wordpress is PHP, thats pretty much your desicion. Do you use wordpress? Then learn some PHP, for everything else you will be better with phyton as it is way more complete language

    Hell no. Javascript is just another flashy thing. It's absolutely ridiculous language. PHP is and will be popular, but Python seems to be gaining more popularity these days.

    Sorry but I can't keep up with you, php is lousy compared to many other contenders :) It's already out-dated 2018.

    If over half of the world is using PHP then it's not dying anywhere. It's like people are saying that Java is dying, but damn thing is still everywhere.

    You will learn basic things within few months. Other knowledge comes from experience.

    PHP is becoming less relevant, you love php I get it but it's still slowly but surely losing out to competition. There are a lot of things out there and php is widely used now but times changes.

    This is purely my opinion :)

    Nope, I don't love PHP, I do love Python, it's amazing. It's just I have been using PHP 15+ years and still use it every day and I have been around it long enough to understand what's going on. PHP 7 was an incredible update so I don't see PHP becoming unrelevant or dying any time soon.

    Learn both, it's not that hard. I use Python daily and PHP sometimes, when I need to support legacy project or create some kind of integration.
    I hate PHP and I'm really happy that I know how to use it. Sometimes it's a lifesaver.
    Learn as much as you can, this way you will draw your own conclusions.

    FYI, Zen of Python:

    Code:
    Beautiful is better than ugly.
    Explicit is better than implicit.
    Simple is better than complex.
    Complex is better than complicated.
    Flat is better than nested.
    Sparse is better than dense.
    Readability counts.
    Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
    Although practicality beats purity.
    Errors should never pass silently.
    Unless explicitly silenced.
    In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
    There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
    Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
    Now is better than never.
    Although never is often better than *right* now.
    If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
    If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
    Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!
