Handy Tool for Learning Web Development and its Various Web Technologies

By Reinalei Jamir

On Friday, May 9, 2014

I know how complex web development may sound. Believe me, it’s not. Well, with Adobe Dreamweaver at least. As a WYSIWYG editor, it is pretty easy to use. It a very useful tutorial tool for web developers wanna-be. Its main purpose is not to teach beginners, but its simplicity is a good stepping stone if you want to learn more about web authoring.

Dreamweaver’s most prominent feature is the Design View and the Code Editor. It is set on its window into two separate areas and each has its own specialization. The Design View is where a developer creates the layout of a web page. At the bottom is the Code Editor where the code of the web page is automatically generated. I know, it’s cool!

It’s a great learning tool because aside from learning HTML elements, Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 also supports other web technologies such as JavaScript and CSS. It also supports other frameworks and scripting languages such PHP, Scrptlet, ColdFusion, ASP, ASP.NET C#, ASP JavaScript, ASP VBScript, and ASP.NET VB.

Pros

  • Supports majority of web technologies
  • Generates and highlights codes automatically

Cons

  • Requires specific settings to avoid hang-ups during document loading or opening

REVIEW

I know when any software that is called adobe what comes to your mind is all about editing photos and also images but this time you are wrong let me tell you about the adobe Dreamweaver and it is all about developing websites. The first time I downloaded it I realized they even offer tutorials which help new users in this field of websites but thanks to them now I can be able to have a particular website of their own and also the other good thing about them is that I also was able to view and see the end product of how my websites looks like and then this helps the user to know whether they are on the right track or they need to change anything.
