Aptana Studio

I had a chance to take an Ajax class recently. It wasn't what I expected, really. What was billed as advanced JavaScript-ing amounted to writing my own $ function, and attaching a function to the array of elements returned. I also got to write my own wrapper around XMLHttpRequest. Not exactly rocket science. Needless to say, I was disappointed.

In any case, I did get some tidbit on closures. Also learned what is "em" in CSS. I also got a chance to use Aptana Studio for the lab exercises. I was pleasantly surprised. It has come a long way.

RadRails got updated, too, since I looked at it last. I will have to check it out, along with Rails 2.0 as well.
