- Hi, I'm James Williamson, Lynda.com Senior Author and I want to welcome you to Dreamweaver CS6 Essential Training. In this course, we'll be focusing on introducing you to the tools and workflows in Dreamweaver that help you build standards-compliant websites. We'll start by becoming comfortable in the Dreamweaver environment. And exploring how to properly manage your sites. From there, we'll look at creating new pages, structuring content properly, and making sure that your code is generated in a clean and an accessible manner.

We'll also cover Dreamweaver's powerful CSS tools, how you can use other programs, like Word and Photoshop to speed up your workflows. And how to properly create and style forms and tables. We'll also look at ways that you can add user interactivity to your pages. And how to use Dreamweaver to design for multiple screens so that your sites work properly across multiple devices. It may sound cliche, but we really will be talking about all of that and more. Dreamweaver is an amazing tool, and I'm excited about showing you what it can do. Let's get started.
