Once GoLand is opened, you’ll be prompted to activate the IDE in the License Activation window. Alternatively, click Evaluate for free > Evaluate > Continue to start your free trial.
To enable educational functionality, switch to the Learn tab on the Welcome screen and click Enable Access under the Learn to program widget.
We strongly recommend always using the latest versions of PhpStorm. The IDE will check for updates automatically every time it is opened, but you can also check and configure updates manually at Help > Check for Updates > Configure.
For more information about the installation process, please refer to the PhpStorm guide.
How to start working with PhpStorm?
To start working, you need to open your PhpStorm, log in to your JetBrains Academy account, and choose one of our projects from the Frontend tracks.
On the Project stage or the Problem page, choose the IDE tab and click Solve in IDE. Make sure that the IDE is correctly installed and opened.
After that, you will see a popup window with a description of your chosen project. Click Continue to start loading your project in the IDE.
Pay attention to the processes running notification in the bottom right corner of your screen. Allow the IDE to download all necessary files before starting to work on your project.
The window on the left shows you the directory and file structure of your project. The window in the middle is a place for you to write your code. The window on the right contains the project (or problem) description and examples.
Once you've finished writing your code, click Check to verify your solution. Once the correct answer has been submitted, you can click JetBrains Academy to return to your study plan or click Next to open the next stage of your project.
