Yesterday I watched the PHP coding video and learned a lot about it, specifically the language that is used to code in this software and how exactly to store data using PHP. It’s very similar to Java and Python in the sense that they all use the same expressions and terms to complete projects.

Today I worked on the web development unit, learning how to code in Java Script and seeing how it differs from other coding languages that I have already learned, like Python and PHP. what’s interesting is to see how there is an overlap between the different languages (like how Java and Python use classes and sets) but they execute these operations in different ways given their software.
