I love what FB did - they started with PHP and then instead of switching to Rails or Go as they grew larger, they created their own fork which both outperforms the original and was way more advanced before PHP7 was released.

Even nowadays I find HHVM hot - you can utilise cooperative multi-tasking simply by prefixing your method with async and then awaiting at runtime, how neat is that?
