I really love Laravel, it's a beautiful monument of software architecture. But I also recommend to Ruby and Ruby on Rails. In both frameworks/languages you can built amazing things easily.

PHP has the defacto OOP specs, but ruby is magic and, as everything is a object (EVERYTHING), I consider it THE OOP LANGUAGE YOU MUST LEARN too.

BTW. If someone is about to complaint in favor of Node and JS, check out AdonisJS framework, a really truly MVC framework for Node, aaaaand is based on Laravel. Also, try adonis too.

I think languages and frameworks has their strengths and weakness. Node has async execution and websockets made easy. Ruby a easy language to run. PHP a good and easy deployable code. Also there are many strengths more.

Thanks for your post!!
