    Probably. A lot of PHP's syntax is based off of C++. And in the meantime you learn some C++. =D

    Most definitely! The class will introduce you to programming concepts and techniques that will prove to be very useful in all other languages, including PHP.

    What I learned in my degree is that it's not about learning specific languages, it's about learning programming theory. Once you understand the theory, models, concepts, etc. surrounding programming, learning other languages just becomes a matter of learning each language's unique keywords, semantics, and syntax. For example, I've never programmed in python, but I can guarantee you that in a day, I could write decent little programs because I understand programming principles.

    So in conclusion, take the course!
