Hi,

Dreamweaver Videos

For these videos, I’ve upgraded both the video and sound quality … and I had to invest to make this happen. So I hope you guys will see and hear the difference!

The video course runs a total of about 7 hours, spanning over 30 videos.

Thanks,

Dreamweaver CS4 Review

July 15, 2008

The boys and girls at Adobe recently released a public beta of Dreamweaver CS4 – I can now freely talk about it now!

I’ve been beta testing Dreamweaver CS4 for a little while now and I’ve been looking forward to spewing my nerd impressions. I had to hold my tongue until Adobe released DW CS4 to the public …

In this article, I provide a quick overview of what’s in CS4. But don’t worry, in soon to come articles and video tutorials, I will be digging deeper.

Read the complete review of Dreamweaver CS4.

BTW: I should have a couple of new Dreamweaver CS4 videos out very soon.

Thanks,

Dreamweaver CS4 coming soon?

May 18, 2008

I’ve been hearing the quiet murmur of nerds lately, soft sounds that speak of Dreamweaver CS4.

Yes, I do have my finger on the pulse of the nerd-zeitgeist and from what I understand, Dreamweaver CS4 is coming out sooner than later. I’m guessing sometime this winter.

Are there any details?

I’m not sure what is coming (in terms of new features), but I have heard what is leaving and not coming back:

  • ASP.net support.
  • Layout Mode and Timelines.
  • JSP support

Some speculation:

I am guessing that Adobe will position Dreamweaver to be more web developer centric than designer centric.

Not that they will turn Dreamweaver into a glorified text editor, I just get the feeling that they will spend more time on the coding end of things, than on the design end.

My thinking is based on the work Adobe has done with Flash CS3 and especially Actionscript 3.0.

… It is clear with AS3, that Adobe made the decision to make the Flash scripting language more appealing to hard-core programmers than to designers. AS3 is much more powerful but it is more complex and harder to learn than Actionscript 2.

That said, please do keep in mind that when it comes to what may be coming in Dreamweaver CS4 … it is total speculation on my part.

CIAO,

Use Dreamweaver CS3 templates to save time

May 1, 2008

Hi,

When I was working on the redesign of the killersites.com, I found (as a starting point) that the templates that ship with Dreamweaver CS3 useful.

Dreamweaver CS3 starter templates

Dreamweaver has a nice collection of bare-bones web templates. One thing I found cool about these templates, is that they contain a lot of notes that describe why they (the web-nerds at Adobe) have certain things in place – like the specific code they used to deal with a given CSS layout issue.

… This is another good way to learn more about CSS.
