Has anyone else gone through this thought process?
Has anyone gone on a Dreamweaver or other course?
Any help / input would be much appreciated. sue
i'm no expert in dreamweaver but i've been using it for approx 4 mos. i know a lot about it and i can do some pretty neat things with it, but it's nowhere near advanced. someone at godaddy told me once that the average learn curve on DW is about 2 years. i believe it too! at any rate though, i do have expertise in other languages, but not PHP and JS. i had to learn them though to work with websites. if you want my advice, and this is just my opinion, forget classes. out of all the languages that i've worked with, dealt with, unspeghetti'ed, and structured according to need, i have never bought one book with the intent of using it to learn the language. from my experience, i woud have to say that working with business people is totally opposite than learning how to do something "right". a book will teach you that if that's the route you want to go. if you want to make money though, i'd forget the books....and the classes too.
like i said though, IMHO....use your programming instinct and your intelligence to figure it out, not the classes. you can save your cash that way too....spend it on something else.
