Dreamweaver Software: Teach Yourself on a Budget

By Edited Jun 7, 2014 0 0

Adobe Dreamweaver is a popular web design software package.

For the beginner without training in web design learning Dreamweaver is challenging - but Dreamweaver will allow you to create a more professional looking website with more flexibility to do what you want.

Dreamweaver tutorial classes are available but are expensive. Leading beginners to ask how they can learn to use Dreamweaver software without investing a great deal of money into the project.

It is possible to learn how to use Dreamweaver on a small budget. Here is how I did it successfully.

YouTube: There are a wealth of tutorial videos available showing how to do different tasks on Dreamweaver. I found these essential to learning how to use the program. Actually seeing someone use Dreamweaver was easier than trying to following written instructions. So if you need anything from the basics to advanced "how to" instructions head to YouTube.

Books: I found the most useful and easiest book to use was Teach Yourself VISUALLY Dreamweaver. This series of books is easy to understand and fast to find what you need. As a bonus it is not an expensive book to buy so good value for money. 

Friends: It's quite possible one of your friends has experience with Dreamweaver. I was lucky enough to have such a person. I found it very helpful to ask questions at times when my other resources weren't enough. If you don't know anyone who has used Dreamweaver there are message boards around the internet that discuss this topic. I also found these useful.

Google: An internet search is an effective tool to discover the tips and tricks of building websites with Dreamweaver. As long as you can gather enough information from your other resources to choose specific and useful keywords for searching you have a high chance of finding the information you want online.

Practice: Finally, like anything from riding a bike to learning a musical instrument - learning to use Dreamweaver requires practice. Lots and lots of practice.

Time: Learning Dreamweaver is not something most people would be able to do in a few days or even a few weeks. It took me a few months before I became really comfortable with the Dreamweaver software and had enough skills to build the website I wanted. So determination and persistence are important to learning a software program like Dreamweaver.
