Adobe Dreamweaver

Proficiency: Advanced
Years of Experience: 6

Adobe Dreamweaver is a web design and development application that provides a visual editor and a code editor. It provides transfer and synchronization features, the ability to find and replace lines of text or code by search terms or regular expressions across the entire site.


Dreamweaver is my prefered method of connecting to a remote web server through FTP. In addition to transferring files well between local and server setups, Dreamweaver has many tools and tricks that allow me to code in HTML, XHTML, PHP, .Net, Javascript and more.

I have used other methods of coding and designing websites, but Adobe Dreamweaver has become second nature to me. The color coding hints allow me to spot errors in code before uploading to the website server. There are additional tools for building forms, keeping track of variables, and debugging code on the fly.

New versions of Adobe Dreamweaver come out all the time, I do my best to stay current, or at least abreast of the current changes to Dreamweaver so that I can work comfortably on a workstation with any recent version Dreamweaver installed. I can also administer any Dreamweaver program installation. I can customize the views for other staff and employees, and I can connect users to the server for uploads and downloads.

I also use Dreamweaver to perform various tasks on the server system itself. I can modify folder permissions, create backups, and impliment .htaccess protocols. I can install WordPress or other interactive script package to a server using Dreamweaver.
