The video below nicely explains and compares JavaScript and PHP in terms of differences and similarities.

The main idea of it is that JavaScript lives in the browser and PHP on the server and when you know JavaScript it is easy to learn PHP....

Both PHP and JavaScript are: dynamic (scripting) languages:

  • Implicit type declaration
  • Weakly typed
  • Type checking occurs at run-time

Dynamic languages: JavaScript, PHP, Python, Ruby

Static Languages:

  • Explicit type declaration
  • Strongly typed
  • Type checking occurs at compile-time

Statically-typed languages: C, C++, C#, Java
