Join Paul Trani for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Creating a First Website in Dreamweaver CC 2014.
Before I dive into the content of this course, there's a few things that you should know and some things that I'm going to assume that you know as we get into it. In fact, you should be familiar with the JPG file format for instance, a very popular one. It's great if you're familiar with Photoshop, because we're going to be exporting graphics out from it as well. If you know how to create video, that's great. because we'll be integrating video, as well as just some basic web standards. But to be honest with you, we're going to be covering all of that. Everything about HTML and CSS.
But also lastly, if you're familiar with social media, such as Twitter, that's wonderful as well. Because you're going to be integrating a Twitter stream into your site. But really that's it, just taking those fundamentals of images and video and social media and bringing it all together into a really nice well designed websites
Author Paul Trani begins with brief introductions to HTML and CSS. Then you'll learn how to create a basic webpage, add text and images, and style the content with CSS. Paul then shows how to add navigation and links between pages, integrate video and social media (such as a Twitter feed), and create a contact form. The course also covers making sure your layout is "flexible" (i.e., that it resizes to fit mobile devices), testing your site, and uploading it to the web.
