Just put together a short (10 min) video of how to set up Aptana Studio 3 and it's Pydev module for developing python scripts that use ESRI's ArcPy module. Let me know what you think!

  1. Hey thanks! WingIDE is also nice - but costs a little over $100 last time I looked.

    Also liked your description of becoming a self taught script monkey/developer. My experience has been similar - MIT opencourseware is very helpful in this regard.

  3. Great post, this was very helpful. I would be interested in seeing another one regarding your development environment for JavaScript projects.
