I am still a student and learned PHP and am learning Laravel. Is it worth it to start focusing on full stack JavaScript? I want to become a back ender. Or full stack developer if i choose JS.

What career path would be better as a back ender (full stack on my own ideas)? Node.js sounds great, i heard about the MEAN stack etc., but i don't know if it will be a stronger choice then PHP/Laravel.

In my area there are like 231 jobs for Node.js and 135 for Laravel. But i would want to make a good choice.

I also still have like 4 more years to study before i will need to start searching for work. I have 3 years of studying on my belt now.

Can some experts give me some guidance. Thanks in advance.
