Book Description

1 Oct 2002
Macromedia Dreamweaver MX merges the faultless visual layout tools of Dreamweaver and the powerful yet easy-to-use database integration offered by UltraDev into a product that is simply the most vital piece of software any web designer can own.

Unlike many other books, Foundation Dreamweaver MX concentrates on both sides of this alliance, looking to the future. No matter what your background, this book will give you a solid foundation in graphic design and layout issues as well as a full grounding in the powerful database integration features that Dreamweaver MX offers.

The truth is that database integration is no more of an extra in today's climate than faultless visual design, and this book is here to guide you through this new world, covering dynamic scripting with PHP and the popular MySQL database.

This book is suitable for both PC and Mac (OS X needed) platforms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Book For The Beginner 9 Dec 2002
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have always dappled with Dreamweaver and given up as things got complicated. Being of a technical mind and not artistic, I thought this much talked about piece of software was beyond me...... Not with this book. It teaches you right from the start and holds your hand every step of the way. If you want to learn Dreamweaver MX properly there's no better start than this. Excellent work from Friends of ED as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed reading and working with this book 29 Sep 2003
If you have -like me- done some HTML coding and maybe used some HTML generators before, this book is right for you. I wouldn't recommend the book to someone who has never done *anything* with HTML at all. I had developed 2 static sites with Dreamweaver before I purchased this book but felt like in need for a book that explained all the other bells and whistles (I never used templates or snippets before, for example) that Dreamweaver offers. This book is particularly good if you're also looking for an introduction into web application development using PHP and mySQL. However this doesn't mean you necessarily need to have done some work with Dreamweaver of PHP/mySQL already. Don't expect the book to cover the whole width of PHP/mySQL though - this is another bookworthy topic !
I love the tone and style of the book - it takes you by the hand where required (before reading the book, I found switching on the PHP on my Apache webserver via Terminal under Mac OS X a daunting task !) when dealing with those technical topics. However, this book is not a Mac only book - Windows users will not have any problems at all learning Dreamweaver with it.
Friends of Ed have an online forum should you encounter any issues with the book or the excersies. In addition, authors give you their email addresses so you can contact them directly - nice touch !

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes you can do it too 18 Mar 2004
Web design made easy that's how this book should be known...
It will get you well on the way to learning the basics of dreamweaver MX. Good if you are a true beginer..
Most chapters are quite well writen sometimes in a language a bit too down to earth for their own good.
The 2 chapters on cascading style sheets CSS? errrr not so impressive. Overall a good book though

5.0 out of 5 stars informative and creative 9 Jan 2003

This book gives a really good introduction to Dreamweaver MX for people who, like me have only just got to grips with Dreamweaver. Clear information but creative ideas - well thought through, well written, easy to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good book from Friends of Ed 28 Oct 2005
By TheGonz - Published on Amazon.com
I bought it last year but it was a little outdated and unnecessary complicated when explaining how to get PHP/Apache/MySQL installed.

I consider myself an experienced user but that part of the book dissapointed me.

What I love about FOED books is that they develop an entire application and guides you step by step. Their books are my choice NO. 1!

Of course, this book is now a little outdated and would recommend to buy the new ones.

This book is an excellent starting point for anyone who has only just got to grips with other dreamweaver versions. It gives clear but creative information in a way that is easy to follow. It's very well written and gives some good examples
4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Beginners 10 Jan 2003

As a novice i found this book very helpful, it was very clear and the case studies gave realistic examples that i could apply to my experiences. The language isnt too technical. The content is in depth without being over whelming.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Mutts Nutts 10 Jan 2003
By "passerbye" - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book from my local private bookstore; as soon as I picked it up I was grabbed by the simplicity and the clear stating of what I needed to know. Personally I can never get to grips with html tables but with the tutorial on table layout I can now create complex tables with ease, I can now even add CSS styles to them. Wow! I was overwhelmed at the progress I made within a few days of reading; I can now even add flash movies into my page. Basically this book got me from the stage of "oh god, how can I do this?" to "erm, I'm bored I want to do more advanced stuff". Great Book
