OldTime Lounge Lizard looking for tutorial

Not a lot of points to offer but I'm looking for a beginner's tutorial for Dreamweaver.
I have kinda played with web publishing using MS Pub.  [yeah...I know] and now have access to Dw 8

Quick & dirty links or advice???


TIA

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Congrats StoneG! A small step for coders, a great leap for.. ehrm..

This is where i started years ago:
http://www.webmonkey.com/authoring/tools/tutorials/tutorial1.html

After that i went:
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=tutorial+dreamweaver&sm=Yahoo%21+Search&fr=FP-tab-web-t&toggle=1&cop=&ei=UTF-8

And then: http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/

But.. What are you going to use it for? If its just design, awright.. if its anything more i would say go:
Dot net matrix: http://www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=0&tabid=1
Or Visual Web developer Express: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/vwd/default.aspx

Both free!!!!! And lots`n lots of resources!!!

Hey Mattis!

<What are you going to use it for? If its just design...<
Yeah, I'm primarily a photo-er who wants wysiwyg combined with enough knowledege to have a grasp of the problems that surface.
      ...at least as a beginner.

I have tried my hand at programming many moons ago...I am SO much better at visuals & composition. ;-)

I'm tempted to take your links & run 'cause  I figure this is all I can use right now, but I'll leave this open 'till sometime Friday... just as it was done back in the day when I was  ¨ƒô».  
:-))


thunx, man!

Well, then i guess DW is great for your use!
Another tip.. Get the Dummies books on DW, they are excellent, and i still use the old ones for reference..
HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

Hi StoneG,

Let me add a vote for Macromedia devnet.  Not only are there good articles on DW, but there are a ton of flash-based demos and videos that walk you through some of the more common but less intuitive tasks in the software (setting up sites, setting up a testing server, creating recordsets, etc).

Thanks for the help, folks.
I think I have enough to keep me going for a while!

Closing it here, boss!
