Aptana IDE: Your Unfair Advantage for AJAX, iPhone, Adobe AIR, PHP and Rails Development

Chris William's iPhone Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

In this session, Chris, lead developer on the RDT (Ruby Development Tools) Project, will review all of the major features of the Aptana IDE - a free, open source, cross-platform, JavaScript-focused development environment for building AJAX applications.

It features code assist on JavaScript, HTML, and CSS languages, FTP/SFTP support and a JavaScript debugger to troubleshoot your code. With nearly 1 million downloads to date, the Aptana IDE is fast becoming the standard way AJAX developers build their Web 2.0 applications.

Prior to joining, he was the lead developer of the Ruby Development Tools (RDT) project that brought Ruby support to the Eclipse IDE. He has also served as a mentor to students; one contributing to the project through the Google Summer of Code, and three others as part of their Master's thesis. At Aptana, Williams continues his role of lead RDT developer in addition to heading development of Aptana RadRails. Prior to joining Aptana, he has worked in R&D for both Paychex Inc. and the Xerox Corporation.
