Its too late for php in my opinion. All major companies have dumped PHP and moved on to node. Javascript is too big to fail now. Already ruling front end with React/vue/Angular, started to dominate backend and now with React Native/nativescript, it has native mobile app development covered too.

I don't think so. Sure, a lot of companies are moving to other platforms and have been doing so for years with ones like Rails or Django (and more recently, Node). But for example Wordpress and Laravel are still having quite an impact in the world on a maybe bit different use case and I think there's good work that can be done to help there.
