Good to know. the problem is that many people who say dont like PHP take WordPress or similar for reference and dont even bother to check the latest evolutions of PHP.
In your case I respect your opinion and experience.
I like Node and Go, but still I am in love with Symfony Framework and I am really productive with it. Without Symfony probably I wouldnt have the same opiniion, who knows.
You might be more productive with another language and /or framework and thats perfectly fine as long there is respect for others preferences ;)
