learn sql first why? 1) SQL is simple / not bulky 2) SQL is fun / beginner friendly 1 & 2 will enable you to finish it quickly 3) PHP uses SQL how can you use PHP efficiently if you don't know SQL ⁉ how will you send queries to databases ? you'll need sql . . . 4) SQL is widely used learning sql first will prepare you as soon as possible to use and deepen your skills for an interesting tool you can use sql with python java etc . . . php framework : laravel via symphony *learn php prior to using a framework: much fun

really sql can be learnt in one day including what not taught here at sololearn php requires more dedication as you have to learn a normal programming language and concepts proper to it not taught here at sololearn sololearn uses the word and html css jquery AND SQL

maybe in future you'll use php more than sql, but if you want to be a good php coder, you must learn sql first.

SQL then PHP

Your choice - These are independent courses ... SQL is mainly to do with querying where as PHP is a language of its own. Good luck on your choice and may you succeed.

SQL first because it is a command language to communicate with relational database management system(ms access, ms SQL server, oracle, db2 etc.).. php used to connect with SQL to databases. my opinion is learn first SQL language... you should also learn SQL with PL/SQL.

I learned PHP first, because PHP takes more time to learn.. and also my project was using PHP.. For you, it depends on what web that you develop.. But I suggest learn PHP first after html & CSS, and then SQL.. Anyway, it's up to you, which one first.. At the end, web developer must have skill for all of that language.. good luck for you and all web developer.
