There are three groups of users for Dreamweaver UltraDev. There are the "Dreamies," users of Dreamweaver. There are the "Drummies," users of Drumbeat. And finally, there are the "Newbies," those who have decided to use this new authoring software that is Macromedia's visual solution for rapid Web application development. Dreamweaver UltraDev For Dummies is written to satisfy all three audiences.
Dreamweaver UltraDev looks so much like Dreamweaver that Dreamies may well skip through the early chapters, but they will need to pay particular attention to Recordsets, Server Behaviors, and Extensions. It's safe to say that Drummies will be utterly bamboozled by the entirely different philosophy of Dreamweaver UltraDev and will need to be reassured that this strange beast can in fact do the heavy lifting when it comes to database connectivity. Whatever the challenge, Dreamweaver UltraDev For Dummies will provide the information developers need to get the most out of this powerful, new web development tool.
