Dreamweaver is still back-ordered, but I downloaded a 30 day free trail from Adobe. So I'm good for at least the next 20 days. I still have a lot to learn with Lynda. I have realized that I have to spent more time watching the videos and practicing with Dreamweaver. I am going today and buying a CSS reference book. Lynda is great, but Lynda with a book is far better.
My goals for this week are:
- Learn about spacing, padding, and positioning. The instructor, in the videos, talks about learning to think in CSS. To be able to draw out a page design and have the ability to know what labels and CSS rules are needed to create the page as drawn.
- Create the accent graphics needed to make the page look more professional. This will be a beginning, as I create each graphic I will added it to the page. In doing this one graphic at a time I will be able to focus on spacing, padding, and positioning.
- Create an updated Home page. Taking what I will learn and applying it to create something more professional looking.
