The talk will demonstrate how PHP Storm can speed up WordPress development workflow while also helping aspiring developers better understand how WordPress works.
Some of the topics I’ll cover will be: Configuring a project, setting up and using debugging on a local vagrant box (VVV) with Xdebug, and using Live Templates & placeholders to quickly build commonly used code constructs.
I’ll also detail some quick tips, like jumping to variable and class definitions and quick switching between recently used templates. Time permitting I’ll also show how to use PHP Storms built in tools for compiling, version control, and deployment.
