The mobile and web development platform Appcelerator today announced that it has acquired Aptana, an integrated development environment (IDE) that is used for the development of web applications.
As a suite of tools for designing, developing and deploying cloud-based apps, with enterprise-level apps in mind, Appcelerator and Aptana will provide developers with the best of both worlds. A large part of the combination will focus on mobile and cross-platform app development.
Speaking of the acquisition, Appcelerator CEO Jeff Haynie stated that “We have always focused on enabling the best possible native application experience. This announcement furthers that vision by empowering our growing community of developers to build, test and deploy native, cloud-connected mobile applications faster and with higher quality than ever before.”
