Overview

Hi there, my name is Dan and together we’re going to build a portfolio website using Adobe Dreamweaver.

We’ll use Dreamweaver's handy templating tools to make updates to our site super easy. We’ll create our very own mobile 'burger menu' from scratch learning some basic JavaScript & jQuery.

I am an Adobe Certified Instructor and better yet I work closely with Adobe themselves to develop their own online help videos. I am also a Dreamweaver speaker at the huge Adobe Max conference in Las Vegas 2017. I’m even inside your version of Dreamweaver right now... go on try it... open Dreamweaver > Go to Help > quick tutorial - I’m right there!This course is for beginners. You do not need any previous knowledge in Dreamweaver or web design experience. We will use Dreamweaver ‘split’ view so we can use all the good visual tools as well as doing some simple amends down here in the code as well.

In this series we will take this static design from either Illustrator or Photoshop and together, step by step, build everything in HTML, CSS & JavaScript. We will make our own navigation. We will make adjustments so that everything looks great on different mobile devices.We will work with beautiful fonts & colours & even add Google Analytics to our site to get amazing information about exactly who visits your site.
Now web design can sometimes be tricky so I am here to help - just message me if you get stuck. There are also exercise files so you can follow along. I even save a full copy of the website at the end of every video so that you can check yours again mine if you’re is not working quite right.
