Mastering PhpStorm

When we talk about developing for PHP, there is one IDE that stands out: PhpStorm. It knows your application like no other editor.

But it comes with some drawbacks. The moment you install it, it looks ugly, you are overwhelmed by the number of features thrown at your face, and everything feels slow.

Mastering PhpStorm is a video course that rescues you from this mess. It helps PhpStorm beginners by setting everything up together step by step and benefits advanced PhpStorm users by providing all these little tips and tricks to improve their development workflow even further.

It's a video course for the state-of-the-art PHP developer who wants to work efficiently and successfully in a beautiful IDE.

Make It Beautiful

The look of an IDE has become more and more important these days. We want to code in a beautiful and simple environment with no distractions. That's the opposite of what PhpStorm looks like by default. Menu bars and buttons are all over the place, and you have no idea where to look first. It's hard to feel comfortable in such a place.

It also comes with a beautiful custom Theme, "Rios," which you can install and use immediately.
