Listen to learn about:

* Paul’s pionneering pre-Apatana history
* His work with Xamalon, and how Ajax trumps Flash as a runtime philosophy
* What Aptana shares and doesn’t share with Eclipse
* An emerging JavaScript standard called ScriptDoc, and how it helps Aptana support so many Ajax/JavaScript frameworks
* The future of PHP support in Aptana
* Apatana-the-company’s business model (a.k.a. “We love the free, but we also want you to eat”)
