Is PHP dead? What is the job outlook and future of PHP in the next five years?

Submitted by • July 16, 2019

PHP is far from dead. Since we get similar questions all the time, I am just going to repeat an answer from another discussion.

Is PHP still relevant as of 2019?

COBOL, a 1959 dinosaur language deployed on few tens of thousands installations is still relevant in 2019.

PHP is actively developed on 2019 and deployed on several hundreds of millions installations.

Therefore even just the “still widely used in many web apps” is plenty enough to justify learning it.
