Php vs Nodejs in 2019?

Which should i learn? I want to learn from perspective of full time JOBS and opportunities only

I took a quick look at some current job listings, and while it wasn't easy to tell if PHP was more desired than Node.js (or vice-versa), one thing that stood out was that a significant number of openings required both PHP and Node.js skills.

You might want to keep that in mind unless you are only interested in working in some specific area that uses only one or the other exclusively.

I also recommend that folks check the opportunities for their specific area, since the skills in highest demand will vary in different geographic regions.

I would consider Nodejs as Php is old technology

Are you basing that on a comparison of current job listings? Where?
