Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Employing Live Code, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8 Essential Training.
…Once you start working with dynamic applications…like WordPress, you quickly realize that the…HTML in your source code is only the starting point for what the user sees.…DreamWeaver's live code feature allows you to explore the server process…code so you can debug your pages with the final output.…To illustrate this, let's take a look at our index.php file one more time.…Let's enter into live…view, and now from live view, let's open up split view.…
Now the design view side of the screen renders fine, but the code…view doesn't really change, and it's just as minimal for index.php as before.…However if I go into live code, I'll get the entire page all the…way from the initial doc type HTML all the way down to the closing…HTML tag.…Now you'll notice of course that the live code representation has…a deep yellow background and that indicates the page is not editable.…So you can't make any changes when you're in live code, just like you can't really…make any changes in live view, but you can get an awful lot of information from it.…

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
