Finished Brisingr last night and wasn't too surprised to discover that he's going to be doing a fourth book... Of course there's no indication as to when it will be published
Some of the SEO stuff is obvious but generally neglected from what I can see here. This is my survey of Irish websites. It is amazing how many web developers and site owners haven't even included basic elements such as keyword rich titles for pages.Title/Description/Keyword - what are they saying?
The Professional Search Engine Optimisation book is dated 2007. The O'Reilly book is 2008 and is far more comprehensive as it covers SEO and SEM and optimising Ajax sites.When were the books published?
No.Did they survey the Irish sites?
"Dreamweaver CS4 with CSS, Ajax, and PHP" by David Powers.
I need to get up to speed on Dreamweaver as I have a few new websites to develop and writing and managing HTML/CSS by hand is not feasible any more. Good book and goes from a relatively low knowledge of Dreamweaver up to some advanced areas. Surprisingly I found it in the local bookshop (all the other books on Dreamweaver they had were CS3).
Still very much a newbie on it. I downloaded the demo last week. After a few hours of playing with it I went and bought it online because of the possibilities. (I also tried Netobjects Fusion and a few other programs like Topstyle and Visual Web Developer.) The CSS and PHP are the ones that I am really interested in at the moment. It takes a while to understand how Dreamweaver handles its own template CSS but with PHP, I'd have hundreds of code fragments that need to be reused either as includes or as code. The biggest change is moving from keeping a model of a website and its related code in my head to keeping it as a more easily maintained site in Dreamweaver. This book seems a lot better than a 'Dummy's Guide' as it gets into the nitty gritty quite early. Ajax is something I am not too interested in at the moment as PHP and MySQL seem to be the simplest solution apart from generating a set of template pages and publishing static pages.Started with dreamweaver like most people many moons ago. Never really loved it that much. How are you finding it for those 3 things these days ?
CSS / Ajax / PHP ? nice integration ?
I've been using a command line editor on Linux for writing all my CSS and HTML for years. I think that I was looking for something to tie everything together. Even with Linux there are some good programs but what I like about Dreamweaver, so far, is that it is making it easier to keep track of things. So far I haven't done a lot of work in Dreamweaver but it has a steep learning curve.On the Mac I'm currently using Espresso .. know a lot of people who swear by CSS Edit and Coda (having svn integration) (Espresso being in its infancy I think is trying to be coda .. but I'm ok with that as I quite like it and each upgrade its getting better and better ... kinda like their forums as well and giving feedback on it)
