Discussion on: Do developers still use PHP?

I'm still using PHP, it's the first back end language I learned. It has more powerful functions than JavaScript, especially when manipulating dates. Nodejs is good to get real time data. I tried it when I had to use web socket for the mobile app. I think I will go with PHP for databases requests and manipulations, and use nodejs to get notifications and realtime data from server like for admin dashboards, to update UI on react apps. We can use both at the same time so why not enjoy.
