Have you ever wished for the perfect job? Something you're interested in and that will be fun? Aptana is hiring. It's bleeding edge and perfect for the uber-hardcore-geek 2.0.
I've used Aptana Studio, the web language IDE. This is a free, open source IDE that can run standalone or as part of eclipse. This isn't a lightweight IDE like so many. This is a full featured, web development environment.
If you want to know a little From the Aptana site:
Aptana Cloud is a scalable Elastic Application Cloud™ featuring fully stacked and integrated PHP app engines, Ajax/Jaxer app engines, and soon Ruby on Rails app engines -- ready to use and ready to scale for your apps and sites as you need it. Aptana Cloud plugs right into Aptana Studio to provide instant deployment, smart synchronization, and seamless migration as you scale with those same app engines running locally on your desktop for development and testing before you deploy. Aptana Cloud's team management, integrated source control, application monitoring and other turnkey services make working with the Cloud a breeze. Aptana Cloud is ideal for developers who use scripting languages to create Ajax, Facebook, mySpace and all other sorts of Web applications.
I downloaded the cloud tools and signed up for the beta and will be playing with over the next few weeks. It's pretty cool. Expect some updates here, over the next few weeks, for some hands on updates.
The purpose of this entry though is to tell you that Aptana is hiring. Just to clarify, I don't work for them or get paid by them. This is just an update because the job sounded so cool. If it wasn't 3000 miles away, I would apply for it. Check it out:
