Let's have an Editor-of-choice flame war!

Personally, I've migrated from Textmate to Eclipse to Netbeans to Sublimetext - and every time I think "this will be the last time!". But it truly is a moving target. And here we are, exploring PHPStorm...

PHPStorm Productivity tips by Maarten Balliauw 

Using automatic inspections and quick fixes, PhpStorm can greatly improve code quality. It does this for PHP and web technologies. First-class Composer support provides a head start for every project. We'll get an insight on how to use version control systems and how we can deploy our projects to remote servers. We'll learn about the debugger and see how it can be used to provide insight into our application at runtime. This session is useful for everyone interested in or currently working with the PhpStorm IDE as there will be plenty of tips & tricks to enhance your productivity.

Watch and learn how to use PhpStorm to its full potential!

Editor free-for-all group fight: 

This is where you get to discuss why the way *you* do things is faster and more correct than what we've seen so far in the evening. Followed by a bare-knuckle brawl and probably some random gunfire.
