Adobe Dreamweaver Training: Zero To Hero

Jul 22, 2008
We are always amazed at the number of different types of Dreamweaver user who attend our Dreamweaver training courses,. There is simply no longer a typical Dreamweaver user. We get people working from all types of organisation in all types of role. Private individuals, accounts specialists, marketing specialists, academics, workers in the health services...

In the same way that graphical interfaces have changed computing, making it more user-friendly, the use of Adobe Dreamweaver makes people with limited understanding of web site creation capable of putting together a reasonable site. It is also a greate platform for learning how web sites should be put together. For example, when you create each new web page, Dreamweaver lets you choose from its built-in standard layouts based on Cascading Style Sheets technology, the current recommendation for creating web pages. The code produced by Dreamweaver has lot of useful comments explaining how each page layout functions.

Many small organisations have already learned to rely on Adobe Dreamweaver to build and manage their own website, creating and modifying pages and then uploading them via FTP to make them live and available to the public. Those organisations with a more urgent need to establish a web presence may still turn to a professional web development companies to get them started and then use Adobe Dreamweaver when changes need to be made, often saving themselves a small fortune.

Another way that companies can save a few bucks is by commissioning web designers to create Dreamweaver templates and then using these templates in-house to build the website themselves. This also has the benefit of allowing organizations to maintain control of their site from the outset.

Although Dreamweaver is simple to use, it is unlikely that the average user can simple load it onto their machine and start using it effectively. Most people will benefit from having some Dreamweaver training. This will show them which are the essential aspects of the program and the process of creating a basic site and making it live. A good Dreamweaver training course will also give users an overview of the may web technologies, the underlying code, which Dreamweaver uses as the users visually create their web pages.

One of the most effective ways to make a site useful for visitors is making it interactive, allowing visitors to search for the specific content that they want. After attending an advanced Dreamweaver training course, staff within an organization can learn how to add interactive content to their website using technologies such as ASP, PHP or ColdFusion. And, here again, Dreamweaver does most of the work for you, allowing users to create sophisticated search and results pages using the same comfortable techniques used to create basic content.
