When it comes to learning how to code, I’ll admit, it’s quite handy to have some sort of training book or access to online tutorials. The books tend to be on the pricey side, so I often times spend more time learning from online training sites. An application called Coda is a pretty basic text editor with an astonishing interface and many nice features included within, one being four books on HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP. Surprisingly, there is a similar feature inside of Dreamweaver which includes a wider variety of topics from ASP.NET to XML. The reason I use Dreamweaver over Coda, is that I have not yet mastered my coding skills to the point where I would be able to write everything by hand. Here’s how to locate the reference books inside of Dreamweaver.

  1. Once you’ve got Dreamweaver opened, go to the Help Menu.
  2. Click on Reference from the drop-down menu.
  3. A pop-up window should appear.
  4. Choose one of the many books from the Book menu and select an item from the two corresponding menus beside it.
  5. Hopefully this makes your coding experience a tad bit easier.
