Beginning Dreamweaver MX 2004 takes a practical approach to learning Dreamweaver. Over three sections, it takes a step-by-step approach to the development of three different web sites:
- A static hobbyist site, designed for publishing and sharing recipes and cooking tips
- A dynamic soccer fan site, designed to display upcoming events and news, and which each individual visitor can personalize
- A corporate web site built from dynamic, configurable building blocks
- Each section builds on the lessons learned in the earlier sections and demonstrates increasingly powerful techniques.
As you work through the book you learn how to program using Active Server Pages (ASP), which is used as the example dynamic technology. The core concepts learned in building web sites with ASP are applicable and easily transferred to other languages. To help, the book includes four appendices that provide fast paced guides on how to get started using JSP, ASP.NET, PHP, and Cold Fusion 6.1 with Dreamweaver.
If you are new to web development, Beginning Dreamweaver MX 2004 is the perfect guide to get you started creating attractive, functional websites quickly and easily using the Dreamweaver MX 2004 tool.
If you have already done some web site programming in the past, but youre new to Dreamweaver, Beginning Dreamweaver MX 2004 will show you how to develop your sites with the skills you already have, but in far less time and with fewer bugs using the Dreamweaver MX 2004 tool.
