    @Jilano many of them are to python or node.js

    I dislike PHP due to its mixed typing politics, weird operators, no operator overloading and performance issues. Start a process per request (have fpm or similar to "boost" loading time). Urgh. I rather compile once and have a runtime more often.

    But it works and therefore I make my money with it...

    I moved couple months ago from PHP to ASP.NET due to getting a job in ASP.NET :)

    @Ganofins So you've seen like two people and you've concluded a vague amount of people are moving from one of the most used languages

    @Ganofins One example was never enough to validate a theory. Besides, while I like Python a lot, when it comes to bug websites, PHP is better by a fair margin.

    I intentionally left Node.js. Just because you can dig holes with a spoon doesn't mean you should use it for you garden.

    @neodite @b4dev @inaba @Jilano @PonySlaystation looks like I am wrong
    Actually the question should be
    Are people moving away from PHP?

    @Ganofins It's easy to find and believe information that match your opinion, the opposite isn't.

    because it has hard syntax, i moved couple months ago to python.
    python and django are like god, php and laravel like human

    If I'm being honest the syntax is one of the easiest out there and if you find it difficult then maybe PHP is too advanced for you. Just saying.

    @Ganofins @FahadAlt is not moving away from PHP because the job required ASP, not because it was its choice (maybe it was, but he didn't say that..).

    People isn't moving away from PHP. Just because you see a bunch of people switching from PHP to something else, it doesn't mean that the whole web is doing the same. And even if a lot of people is working with a lot of front-end frameworks (react, vue, angular, ember, whateverNewFrameworkWillBeReleadedThisMonth..), you must not forget that something is powering their backend... Mostly PHP.
