A coding professional needs professional tools^ and while you can write PHP with a regular text editor^ a specialized editor or IDE will make the job easier and your code more accurate. In this course^ programming expert Joseph Lowery takes you on a survey of the most popular all-purpose and PHP-specific editors. Learn what features are absolutely required from any good editor, explore options that can boost your productivity^ like snippets and database integration, and then take a look at tools that work with multiple technologies (such as Aptana Studio^ Sublime Text^ and Cloud 9) and those more directly targeted at PHP (like Eclipse or PhpStorm). This course is vital to anyone starting on the path to PHP programming^ as well as developers seeking to ramp up their efficiency.
