We start with the basic HTML and CSS theory, explaining how to create web pages based on established eCommerce templates, and we move on to incorporate images, lists, tables, and navigation between pages, concluding with more advanced features like implementing an image carousel, establishing a connection with a remote web server, synchronising local and remote sites, and working with local and Creative Cloud libraries.

The Dreamweaver CC Essentials course follows the syllabus for the corresponding Adobe Certified Professional examination and, as well as being suitable for beginners, who wish to become proficient in Dreamweaver’s wide variety of web development and publication features, the course can be used both as a primer or as a refresher course prior to taking the Adobe examination.
