As PHP had evolved over the last few years, programmers and their projects have evolved, too. With this the needs for an integrated development environment (IDE) like Netbeans, Zend Studio or Eclipse PDT got higher and higher. Certainly the question appears, how an IDE should look like and what are the needs to be covered? This session will tell you by the example of the Eclipse PDT how such an IDE may look like. This workshop will give you a hands on and detailed instructions on how to get rid of performance issues in big projects. It'll show you how to use subversion to keep track of you changes in a multi developer environment, and last but not least I will talk about how to make your daily development easier by integrating phpDocumentor and using the Eclipse PHP Tool Integration (PTI) extension. This workshop shall enable you to setup Eclipse for your daily work and therefore I propose you bring your ready setup laptop, so you can practice right away following my instructions.
