Thing is the job is for a really cool org, that I would love to work for. It's in an industry where I have a lot of knowledge already. They don't require programming experience, just 'advanced familiarity with code'. (ie I think I have a good chance of getting the job despite having not been a programmer before). They're also really small and the PHP project is quite nascent, so maybe I could convince them to switch their code to a different language?
I have two weeks before the deadline - I could feasibly learn PHP in that time, (sort of anyway), but it kinda feels like a massive waste of time and energy when I could be getting better at say Python.
Sorry for the rambly question. Any help most appreciated!
