6:45 Logan Gray
Logan Gray has run a small consulting company since 2001, that does both system admin work as well as web development.
Programming off and on since he was twelve. His first job at 18 (way back in the day was creating a membership management system using Dbase/Clipper). From there he went on to other canned database systems, such as Paradox, FoxPro, Access, SQL,...
He first began playing with web based databases in 1996 developing a work order tracking system in PHP & MySQL. After seeing some ASP code, he jumped on the asp bandwagon in ‘99- and then went on to small asp and asp.net projects.
Lately, with more and more projects updating/fixing both php and asp.net web apps showing up on his plate – it’s all he can do to keep up.
In the last few years, he's noticed a much bigger trend towards open source and license free programming, and definitely agrees this is the future.
Main goal: Get the job DONE by any means necessary.
In Defense of Dreamweaver
So I think Dreamweaver has a pretty bad rap.
I feel I would have to say, maybe the biggest problem with Dreamweaver, alone, is it's price. And that's not a good enough reason to dismiss it.
The usual cry I hear is" Developers don't use Dreamweaver", that is , in my opinion, "elitist" and WRONG. Seriously, like - a dev NEVER needs to be tied to, or fix a UI issue?.
I plan to do is go over a number of things in which Dreamweaver CS 5.5, does exceedingly well and many may not even know about.
I'm going to touch on things such as:
· CSS editing
· live editing
· round trip editing
· renaming / relinking
· property inspector
· jquery mobile
· & More, if I have time.
