Book Description

There are three groups of users for Dreamweaver UltraDev. There are the "Dreamies," users of Dreamweaver. There are the "Drummies," users of Drumbeat. And finally, there are the "Newbies," those who have decided to use this new authoring software that is Macromedia′s visual solution for rapid Web application development. Dreamweaver UltraDev For Dummies is written to satisfy all three audiences.

Dreamweaver UltraDev looks so much like Dreamweaver that Dreamies may well skip through the early chapters, but they will need to pay particular attention to Recordsets, Server Behaviors, and Extensions. It′s safe to say that Drummies will be utterly bamboozled by the entirely different philosophy of Dreamweaver UltraDev and will need to be reassured that this strange beast can in fact do the heavy lifting when it comes to database connectivity. Whatever the challenge, Dreamweaver UltraDev For Dummies will provide the information developers need to get the most out of this powerful, new web development tool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners 12 July 2001
By A Customer
I found it to be quite a good read. It takes everything step by step and never assumes that you know technical webbuilding details. It has practical examples to follow which are good. Also the book caters for all types of readers whether they are just designer trying to learn ultradev or past drumbeat users who wish to upgrade to ultradev. However one down point is that in chapter 4, the examples are not present on the CD nor the database that is referred to, so basically you have to learn about updating records and dynamically filling drop down menus the hard way!! however it is still a fantastic read and it really gives you the kick you need to start off databasing your way to the web. I only read upto the 4th lesson in the book and built my databased catalogue in 10 minutes. Now thats ace!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great UltraDev "Dummies" Book 21 Nov 2001
By A Customer - Published on
This is an outstanding book for what it was designed to do and the audience it is intended to reach. Simply stated this book is designed to assist a reasonably computer literate person, not necessarily a web expert, started in rapidly developing data driven Web applications using UltraDev. The author clearly and logically teaches the end-user how to use Ultradev by simple step by step hands on instruction. One of this books greatest strengths, like all "Dummies" books is its simplicity in presenting information. This may not appeal to an experienced developer - however, I wouldn't rule this book out if you haven't used UltraDev before. I just finished my first data driven, UltraDev crated web site with the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for Dreamweaver Users! 5 Feb 2001
By Russell Youngblood - Published on
This is a great book for those who are new to ASP programming and for those who are new to Dreamweaver Ultra Dev. The author has done a great job of breaking down the components of this program and creating dynamic web pages. There is a section which explains how to use ultra cart that is very helpful. I would recommend this book to anyone that is considering using UltraDev for web development. Great job!

1.0 out of 5 stars Ack! Another bad "For Dummies" 2 April 2001
By Brenda Risner - Published on
While the book is indeed "cute" - it doesn't really treat me like an adult. This, sadly, seems to be the trend w/ recent for Dummies books. At one point I enjoyed the series and didn't feel that the other was being condescending... recently I feel that the books are written for children rather than adults.
An example of an *excellent* "for dummies" is TCP/IP For Dummies...
