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

The best web development tool available Adobe Dreamweaver Review by James Meyette

By James Meyette

On Friday, August 1, 2014

Adobe Dreamweaver offers an intuitive “WYSIWYG” or “What you see is what you get” user development interface and a helpful code editor with features including code completeiong, code collapsing, and syntax highlighting(everything you would expect from any IDE) the WYSIWYG design view allows you to not touch a line of code if you so choose, but if you would like you can go in and set things up the way you want as long as you are comfortable using HTML, CSS and JS programming languages. Dreamweaver also has the functionality to use third party extensions so you are not limited to just using the basics and you can also extend it if you are familiar with programming in the language/s required to do so.

Dreamweaver 8 was the last version that was marketed by Macromedia (prior to Adobe Aquiring them). Currently Available on Windows and OS X operating systems it can be used by anyone for any needs associated with making and polishing your website.

Now with the Adobe Creative cloud you don't have to spend a small fortune up front in order to get access to it etiher you can ue Adobe's payment options to license the software and have use of it as long as your subscription is paid.

Pros

  • Quick and easy to make websites with minimal to no coding
  • Easy to use and intuitive user interface
  • Plenty of tutorials and documentation on its use

Cons

  • You have to either pay upfront for a legacy version or pay a monthly subscription fee
  • There could be some more features as some users have mentioned but there is nothing significant missing from it
