Which course should I take to learn Python here at treehouse?
There are two Basic Python courses. One is Python Basics and other is Python Basics 2015. I just want to know which is the latest of them? And which one should I choose as I am a senior PHP Developer and want to learn Python.

Python Basics is the later one. It is a refresh from Python Basics 2015.
Both courses refer to Python3. So you wouldn't learn anything outdated with either, but if you want to take the newer one then Python Basics is the one you want. You might want to increase the playback speed because both courses do not require any previous programming knowledge :0)

I come from a PHP background, have got some interest learning Python, I have done both the courses, but I do not remember the contents, of 2015 off the top of my head, and I just completed the python course for 2018, I do not think, that you would see anything in relation for a latest in terms of the context, both share the same level, which is beginner, in terms of the contents, I'd say, python for 2018 have got many of the contents, which starts from variable to input to data type, to coercing to a data type to, handling exceptions like value exception, name exception, zero division exception, not to mention a mini project, then wrap up mentioning, the take away's, with a road map, towards becoming how to become a Python Developer.
