Should I start Php?

P: 1
-not sure if this is the right section-
Hi guys, this is my first time posting here.
I'm going to second year uni in Bsc Computer Science, and I'm getting into web development.
I know basic Html, CSS, JavaScript and next to no Php (i hated the syntax first time i saw it).
Looking into Full Stack Developer job adverts i noticed almost every single one of them asks for Php knowledge.
I started learning Django about two weeks ago after seeing all the praise it received in the dev community and built a simple blog app. But it just seems to me that there is nowhere near as much demand for django developers compared to developers who can work with Php/SQL.
So, should I just leave django and start learning php and database languages if I wish to land a full stack developer job in the future?
P.s. I'm not planning to ever become a freelancer if that matters.

@Saitama1712,

Yes, you can learn PHP now; the very first reason is it's very easy to use and it has a vast community than Django. So, you will get help easily. Also, many PHP frameworks are easy to use and handy i.e. Wordpress, Magento, CodeIgniter, and Joomla. Also, Laravel, Symfony and Drupal are also amazing frameworks to work with; they use MVC(model-View-Controller) approach. So, you can go with [X]. Good Luck!

Nowadays learning any programming language is not at all tough. If we say for example PHP there are various online tutorials like w3schools.com and other youtube tutorial channel which are run by professionals from where anyone can learn PHP. Proper step by step just like offline classes or institute.

You can become a full stack developer having learned PHP or Python programming language. If you interested in joining any training institute for PHP Course then it is very beneficial for you to learn a concept through live project based training otherwise you can also learn a basic concept through w3schools website which is good to learn basic concept step by step.
