Developer Quotes

Zend Studio is everything you need to work with if you manage web and mobile applications written in PHP. This version 11 is awesome when it comes to prototyping, developing, testing, debugging and running your critical PHP apps. If you develop mobile apps, Zend Studio handles both server and client side for you. A real time saver! I enjoy the wizards, which help to configure my cloud instances access and the Composer single click dependencies installation. My favorite? Git/Gihub support! I also use YAML, and although Studio does not support it natively, there’s an Eclipse plug-in for that!
