5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Learning Resource 28 Oct 2008
By Ian
Format:Paperback
I rarely feel moved to write a review, but the excellence of this book deserves recognition. I have some intermediate experience with Coldfusion, but am not a programmer. I was looking for a book that would provide a tutorial approach to dynamic site development (there are not many around) concentrating on Dreamweaver server behaviors (I already have some knowledge of hand coding such applications in CFusion). Not being a programmer, PHP and ASP continue not to be of much of a temptation for me to learn. The book does not change my opinion on that although I agree with the authors that if you are a professional developer (which i am not) then knowledge of more than one server language is very desirable.
The book is extremely well written and flawless in content (coding, illustrations, text etc), which is not true of similar books that i have on my bookshelf on this topic. Takes you through the development of a dynamic site, including a Content Management System. There are many excellent 'professional developer tips and tricks'. There is a chapter on AJAX - this i found to be the most esoteric chapter in the book - stimulating and informative. Through this I have learned a lot about XML (which I previously thought of as a 'black art') and Spry Javascript library.
This book is money very well spent. Do not hesitate to buy it. It is very rewarding, but be prepared to do some hard work in going through the tutorials. The authors exhibit a compassionate approach to us, the students, in search of knowledge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 17 Sep 2009
By Sam.R
Format:Paperback
I found this book really useful in understanding how to code ASP with Dreamweaver. The examples are easy to understand and well written. I plan to go back through the book and retry with PHP in the near future and maybe some day with ColdFusion.

I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn more about any of these technologys. I think it is great that you work through an example website along with the book as it shows you how these languages are put to use in the real world. It even leaves you with a couple of things to work out completely by yourself. The only downside is the information on putting a website on a hosting account could be better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide for taking it to the next level 1 Mar 2008
By Jay Steele - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have quite a bit of experience building static sites and pages and realized the importance of expanding my understanding of building dynamic sites. I have a pretty good understanding of using Dreamweaver but am just getting started on using Dreamweaver CS3. I was hoping to get a better idea of how to use all of the new features in CS3 while also specifically learning php. I got more than I bargained for. Specifically, I was not aware of the differences between ASP, ColdFusion and PHP. Now, I have a much better feel of which one to use for different situations.

One of the things that struck me right away is that anyone, regardless of your current level of experience, that is interested in using Dreamweaver can start out with this book. For those of you who already have Dreamweaver experience, you can speed through a few of the first parts but it is always great to see how someone else approaches things.

The tutorials and sample files were great and very easy to use - very intuitive and the sequential steps made lots of sense. I am still in the process of implementing all of the things I am learning. As a result of using this book, I am now planning to revise an existing static site and launch a new dynamic site. I love the way the book is written - very practical. I almost feel like the authors are having a dialog with me all along the way.

I would strongly recommend this book to anyone that wants to learn how to use Dreamweaver CS3 to build dynamic websites and applications.

5.0 out of 5 stars the holy grail for DW and dynamic site creation 5 April 2008
By Larry G. Bainbridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is truly the missing book that belongs on any up-and-coming web designer, or someone who would like to learn how to design dynamic pages. This book walks you through the necessary steps of static website creation and then beautifully aides you in the setup of a webserver and related technologies to run dynamic content. Then the reader is taken through all necessary steps to create asp, php, and colffusion pages. I have MANY books on php, mysql, asp and coldfusion but NONE are as useful as this. This book is more for someone who has some web designing experience and some dreamweaver knowledge. The sample files are beautifully constructed so that you can start on any chapter or work from the beginning, and the files all build upon each ther toward a single website which will reinforce good techniques. I would recommend this book to anyone who has NO experience in writing programming code or someone with a lot of experience but needs help using it in Dreamweaver. Perfect Book!! Well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Book Except...... 21 Jun 2008
By Guido T. Sarducci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 with ASP, ColdFusion, and PHP: Training from the Source

I've used other Jeff Bardzell books before and found them very good for beginning code.

The latest edition, covers Spry somewhat, which is helpful. And, as in the previous edition, Bardzell conducts tutorials to build an application in ASP, ColdFusion, and PHP for the fictious company Newland Tours.

However, there are abundant code typos, which can be very difficult for beginners. The book should have an errata site/blog somewhere; this is a major disappointment in this new edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Essentially Worthless 23 April 2008
By Mark Twain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found the book to be so superficial that it is essentially worthless to anyone who needs to use Dreamweaver CS3 dynamically. The book is well written and the tutorials are thoughtful but there is so little understanding of the material covered (server side scripting, XML, databases, AJAX, etc) that any designer who is asked to build a dynamic website will look to other sources. Use this book if you are already familiar with backend development. However, the tutorials presented are so limited in scope that if a designer/developer's only experience of backends is this book, you're in a LOT OF TROUBLE.

I bought this for school. The prices here are so much better and cheaper in what's offered in the campus book store.
