As we use the Woltlab Suite Core, we are bound to PHP and use it with the as a FPM. Currently version 7.4 is running on all of our hosts and we use a lot of the recently added typing and nullability features to write more reliable code that can be easier analyzed through our tools.
We also use it for some WSC embedded cron-scheduling and internal web-interfaces, but tend to use a more modern Frontend-Backend architecture for all newly created projects as we enjoy the clear differentiation between View and Controller.
PHP is a well-tested and huge community language which has been proven as a fast and reliable way of quick development. Here in Barcelona is one of the most popular languages, we celebrate some conferences like https://php.barcelona Also, with the addition of some framework like Symfony, you could add more reliability to the development process.

Symfony is probably the most popular PHP framework nowadays. We began with Symfony 2.6 and during 2019 we migrated to Symfony 4.2, also introducing #DDD and #hexagonal to our development process. Thanks to this improvements we could manage a quite big company with a small development team. If you agree, don't forget to upvote my review.
