Starting with javascript is important, it shows you the basics of object oriented programming and how a DOM can interact with HTML to edit the frontend. This principle is necessary in Django, however by using python, there is a large amount of key principles left out. Learning how types operate and why data locations should be managed by the programmer is an essential skill, but easily managed by python, for this reason, I would start with Javascript to understand how to change the front end, and then “migrate” these skills into Django only once you have learned the key OOP principles

    Yes it still is and it will be for a long time. At least in web development.

    WordPress is powering close to 75 million website and that uses PHP. I work for an agency that is trying to get PHP developer for 12 month and is still employing. In the UK is a large amount of open PHP jobs and I get contacted at least once every week from companies offering PHP jobs.

    If you want to get paid for your work and want to be able to choose the company you work for then PHP is the language you need to be good at.

If you asked this question in 2011, the reply would have been: “probably yes, but only because of the massively huge code base developed in 15 years”.

In 2017, we have to reply: “There has been a disruptive factor called PHP 7. It changed a lot in the backend development perspective”.

PHP 5.5+ had been a big step up already. From the ancient, C flavoured spaghetti code, to a proper rich and modern language.
PHP 7 is not “just” monstruosly fast (it’s been reenginered from scratch), it also takes a LOT of the “good stuff” from Java and other good languages and makes it extremely easy to create proper code.
Code fast, code fast code (!) and have nothing special to install. No stale compiled files, no need for complicated sources building software, no need for a compiler at all.

    PHP is still very relevant! Since the release of PHP 7, the language is now being concidered as an enterprise programming language. This means that it’s used a lot of places where big work-loads happen.

    The true magic with PHP is that there are different frameworks that makes your code very nice to look at; while also making your job very much easier. (little plug for Laravel ;))

  1. Monday to Friday: I work around 18 hours per day and I don’t even notice they were so many hours. I recover my dignity this way. Friday night to Sunday: I hit vodka like there’s no tomorrow, probably do some crazy things in some club. I loose my dignity somewhere I don’t recall. Repeat. Corollary: DRead more

    Repeat.

    Corollary: Dignity is a renewable resource.

  1. Buffalo is on the Great Lakes and is a major urban area that is within two hours of Toronto. However, the Winters can be cold with over 10 feet of snow. Binghamton is a smaller area and a nice campus. But it is isolated. My gut feeling is Buffalo, it is much more Cosmopolitan.

    In my opinion, you should be thinking about looking for work. Try to network and see if there are employers were looking for analytics. This is different from analysts. They could be market research companies, companies are looking for pricing decisions, and even productivity.

    Look to companies where the culture and business processes are not instinctual. Rather look for companies that require analysis.

    Unfortunately, one becomes more Bible as one becomes more familiar with the tools of analysis. This may be SAS, business objects, or any other reporting environment.

    In conclusion, a massive degree in analytics should result in a job sooner or later.
