I'm a student front the Netherlands and I'm almost graduated. I've experience with PHP (laravel) and ASP.net.
I love coding with both. But lately I'm thinking a lot about what would be better for my carreer.
I know I should do what I like but I like both :).
I"ve this feeling that if I 'choose' for .net I"m a lot safer and will get a better job. Sometimes when I tell people I do PHP they laugh at me and say: "It's a good language tot start with".
I know there is no good or wrong answer tot this question but I"m just curious about your opinions.
Thanks a lot
Choose a company you like and would enjoy working for. Then you will use whatever they use (PHP or .Net or Python or something fancier). If you don't know what company, just try to imagine what kind of product you would like to build, etc.
The debate about PHP or .Net is irrelevant IMHO.
Many criticise PHP, although it has shaken some of the stigma by becoming a lot faster since PHP7. (WordPress and Laravel adoption have helped as well.)
Certainly in the UK you can get a decent salary as a PHP dev and the jobs are probably more common than .NET.
PHP rocks. Laravel, Symfony & Wordpress are great examples. Laravel is really neat, I love it to the core!!
