- If you're a premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to all the exercise files used throughout this title. In fact, here they are on my desktop. If I open this up, you can see it's divided up by chapters and you can jump into any chapter. You'll see the various lessons. You'll have begin files or starter files, and then you'll have the final completed lesson. So, I encourage you to jump to any chapter that you want, check it out, learn about it. In essence, you're going to be creating your own website that is going to exist on your desktop and a lot of those assets actually come from this assets folder.
So, you have a PSD, a JPG, other files as well. And you can always take this final file, this is the completed website, I encourage you to take this, change out all the graphics, all the content, and call it your own. But, if you're a monthly member or an annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to these exercise files, but honestly, you can follow along just as easily with your own assets. Which is really what you want to do anyway. Which is create your own website. So, let's jump right in and get started in creating our very first website in Dreamweaver CC, the 2015 release.
Over the course of the training, you'll learn about building basic webpages; adding text, links, images, and navigation; and making your layout "flexible" on mobile devices. Each step provides another lesson on HTML and CSS, the building blocks of the web. Along the way, Paul shows how to add bonus features, such as animation from Edge Animate, a Twitter feed, and an interactive contact form.
