Product Description

About the Author

Drew McLellan has been involved in web design and development since 1996. Starting originally as a hand-coder, Drew quickly saw the great productivity benefits that could be brought by a visual editor with the arrival of Dreamweaver 1.2. Since then, Drew has been pushing the boundaries of Dreamweaver through its solid HTML based methodology and powerful extensible architecture. With literally tens of thousands of his Dreamweaver Extensions in use around the globe, Drew has established a firm seating within the center of the online Dreamweaver community and can be found on a daily basis teaching and aiding fellow developers in Macromedia's news forums. Drew's online tutorials from his DreamweaverFever.com web site are recognized as one of the more valuable Dreamweaver resources available, due to their clear and non assuming use of language. Drew also helps out at the Web Standards Project (WaSP) as a Dreamweaver expert, focusing on the issues surrounding web standards in Macromedia's flagship HTML editor. As a Team Macromedia volunteer, Drew is a committed Dreamweaver user and enjoys nothing more than being able to share his knowledge and experience of the product with fellow developers.

The SECOND DreamWeaver book you should purchase 10 Aug 2002
By Chris Volion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As the author points out himself, this book is not designed for someone who wants to learn DreamWeaver MX from the ground up.
That being said, Drew McLellan has done a fabulous job of introducing DreamWeaver MX users to those concepts of both Design and Development that are integral to the successful development of any project (without going so far into any one direction as to get you utterly lost). It was refreshing to find a single text that espouses solid, fundamental design issues such as scope creep and reusable sources coupled with advanced DreamWeaver tools usage and building web applications.
If you know DreamWeaver and are now prepared to look at the bigger web development picture, this book is a great single source. It has joined the very short list of recommended books I offer my own design students.

A nice change of pace 1 Nov 2002
By Brad Halstead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received this book, expecting it to be heavy on the server-side lingo and practices, but was pleasantly surprised to see that it dealt with the basics right through to the advanced areas of site conception, layout and design, static and dynamic sites.
If you are familiar with Dreamweaver MX (Self taught) and want to know more about actual web development, both static and application, then this is a must read book for you. The book is clearly for the web developer starting out through to those that are somewhat familiar with 'the way of the web' through surfing and brain picking in the newsgroups.
Drews writing style made the book very easy to read and although I consider myself to be html knowledgable, the book taught me a few things especially related to tables and accessability.
Thanks Drew for the great book!

Easy to Read 11 Aug 2002
By Wayne A. Lambright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First I have to say the author of this book is one of the original people who helped me learn ASP using Ultradev back in June of 2000. Drew McLellan has a great writing style, which makes it easy for beginners to learn, this book Is no different. I especially liked chapter 11 which covers advanced table design. I am nearly embarrassed to say, but I can write asp code in my head but I didn't know what the <tbody> tag was.. this chapter goes over all those freaky details it even goes over a non graphical browser such as a PDA (personal digital assistant) Chapter 17 talks about packaging extensions, which is also nice. In closing this book goes over a lot more then some of the complete technical books about server languages, and programming which never seem to give attention to the less glamour's topics, this book is worth owning.

Great book if you know the HTML basics first 6 Oct 2003
By J. L Vollmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is excellent. I have played around with Dreamweaver a little bit and was already familiar with HTML and its various tags before I bought this book. You should too.
The great thing about this book is that it gives you a problem with HTML, then shows how to make it work with Dreamweaver. It is not just a how-to book but a "why" book which I love. It really teaches you. It gives the pluses and minuses of solving problems in different ways.
This book also tells you about what makes good web design. Get this book and you will love it as I have.

Great for Dreamweaver MX 16 Aug 2002
By Barbara Rhoades - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
DREAMWEAVER MX - Web Development
AUTHOR: Drew McLellan
REVIEWED BY: Barbara Rhoades
BOOK REVIEW: There are over 500 pages of useful information on Dreamweaver MX. Don't have time to read it word for word? Check out the beginning of each Chapter. There you will find a list of Objectives for that chapter and at the end, a summary of what you should have gotten out of the chapter. This is an extremely helpful format, especially if you need to locate a specific topic. An even further breakdown of chapter information can be garnered from the index. There the chapters are reasonably titled so you can locate specific information.
Tips, examples and cautions are scattered though out the book in the same format as most other web-specific books. The book does not contain a reference list chapter or one that has URLs or any web-related references, although the chapters are written in such a way that you don't need a PhD to understand what is in them.
Are you using Dreamweaver MX in your web design work? Then be sure to buy this book to help you get the maximum usage from your program.
