I'm using it already for quite a while now and it is very practical during development. Especially for generating/running tests and generating updates.
If other developers know how to integrate the console into other IDE's such as Zend we could add those later to the guide.
Might also motivate to add more commands in the future such as one that adds a controller method (which instantiates a view and renders it) and a template having the same name etc. I find those tools very handy
BTW: I am also using Vagrant support in PhpStorm (including SSH support) but don't think our dev VM is that much used. We could still mention in a sentence that they can use our Vagrant dev VM in combination with PhpStorm see http://blog.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/2013/08/vagrant-support-in-phpstorm/
Closing this issue here as I moved this issue to another repository where we collect our blog post ideas
