Dreamweaver vs. WordPress? Or Dreamweaver *and* WordPress?

Maybe you're thinking about starting a new web site project and you're wondering if you should use Dreamweaver or WordPress. Maybe you've been building sites in Dreamweaver for years and are wondering what all this WordPress hullabaloo is about. Maybe you're a WordPress user and you wonder what Dreamweaver could do for you.

Come on out and learn all about Dreamweaver, WordPress, and how they can work together. This will be a joint meetup with the LAdobe group.

The Los Angeles Adobe User Group (http://www.laadug.org/) has been in existence since May 2006 and runs regular monthly meetings across Los Angeles County. Meetings involve at least one of the programs Adobe produces in its Creative Suite. From Photoshop to Dreamweaver and Illustrator to Flash to newer programs like Edge. We cover all the bases around your favorite design and development programs. You can find us on Twitter @ladobe

Speakers

Natalie MacLees of SoCalWP and Adam Bell of LAdobe

Parking

Do NOT park in the underground lot at 707 Wilshire. It closes at 8pm and you'll be trapped.

Instead, there are a few other options:

Joe's parking at the corner of 8th and Hope costs $5 and closes at 9pm.

Standard Hotel across the street costs $10 for underground or $15 for up top parking. Closes at midnight. If you park at the Standard, don't pre-pay. Get a sticker from the Dreamhost guys for their parking price.

Covered lot available at the corner of Wilshire and Grand.

    It was good. The topic was great - I have been wondering if I should be using Dreamweaver. I would have liked to see some of the other features of DW that are good reasons to use it, such as the preview feature.

    Very informative and a nice group of people. It could have been an hour longer. It seemed Adam was rushed in the last 15 minutes to met a deadline he wasn't aware of, and didn't get to finish his agenda. That was a shame
