dreamweaver vs(/and) VB?????

P: n/a

I am confused....
I am trying to start getting into internet programming
and creating web pages with a "wow" effect beond the
plain-jane html document, but I dont know where to start.

I have heard and have been bombarded with dreamweaver,
but I dont know how all of that ties togeter, if it
does at all. Is vb.net all I need? Is dreamweaver
just a faster way of producing web pages independent
of vb, or......??????

I am lost.
Any and all enlightenment on the subject
would be appriciated.

Do you know HTML yet? If not, learn HTML first.

Dreamweaver is an HTML editor.

It's easier to do layout with Dreamweaver, but you more or less still
need VS.NET to program - unless of course you wish to use the command
line .NET compiler.

Here's are some good places to start:
http://aspnet.4guysfromrolla.com/
http://www.w3schools.com
http://www.asp.net

Before you start, you need to get familiar with terminology pertaining
to the internet, browser technology, html, xml, web applications,
programming languages, object oriented programming, programming
constructs, sql, SQL Server, MySQL, .NET, Perl, Flash, Java, JSP, ASP,
CFML, etc. If you don't understand these basics first, I don't think
you're ready to start developing web applications.

So start researching a few of these topics first... get a grasp on those
topics first before diving into and trying to build a web application.
If you don't learn the fundementals first, you'll soon find that the
stuff you're trying to do is way above your head.

Thanks for the info. I have already writen afew
html web pages before, but I find that writing
them is primitive at best. Its like trying to
use smoke signals to tell a story.

The rest of the data base and xml stuff,
that you mentioned I have already got a
+- fair understanding, with the exception
of the pearl, and java. I haven't even
touched those yet.

Actualy I think that you discription of the
glorified dreamweaver is just what the
doctor ordered.

There is just so much software out there
that the only way to find out about it is
by asking die hard fans of it.

Once again..
thanks.

If you find HTML too primative, take a look at CSS. If CSS doesn't fit your
needs, you may need something like Macromedia Flash.
There is just so much software out there

As for an HTML editor, Dreamweaver is it. There's no real competition out
there in that category (Frontpage is OK... but still not as good as
Dreamweaver).

you might want to look into Macromedia flash if you want something more
fancy then HTML

Jamie,

The current version of Visual Studio Net is a greath tool for making
webpages.

It is a bad tool for designing webpages.

That is known and will be in my opinion one of the biggest improvements from
the next version.

I hope this gives and idea
