(sizzling) - Hi, my name is David Gassner. And I'd like to welcome you to Dreamweaver CS5, with PHP and MySQL. For many website developers who've learned how to build simple websites with HTML and CSS, the next step is to add dynamic capabilities with application servers and databases. Dreamweaver CS5 offers powerful support for integrating one of the most popular combinations of such software, PHP and MySQL.
In this video series, I'll show you how to use Dreamweaver CS5's new PHP code hinting capabilities. Then, I'll describe how to generate PHP code that connects to MySQL, retrieves and displays data from the server, and inserts, updates and deletes data based on information provided by a website visitor. And show you how to authenticate your site visitors, and provide access to your web pages on an as-needed basis. This video series is designed for developers who are already comfortable with the basic building blocks of all websites.
I hope it will help you jump start your knowledge and use of advanced tools. The PHP application server and language, and the MySQL database. And help you quickly create the code you need to integrate these tools into your own websites.
