Digital Soup for the Soul: Find the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that’s right for you.
So, what’s the best IDE?
To try to answer this question, here’s a peek into a typical conversation among High Road developers:
Peter: “What IDE do you use?”
Peter: “Ever heard of PHPStorm?”
Kris: “Visual Studio anyone?”
Mike: “Seen Brackets in action yet?”
Chris: “Back in the day…”
You get the picture: there are many IDEs available and which one is best for you depends on a few factors. While the majority of IDEs easily perform most coding tasks, there are others that stand out for specific programming languages and/or types of development. They do this by offering a few extra “helpers” to enhance the experience.
