    Default Just Curious for you tech prognosticators....

    Been using dreamweaver to create webpages and was thinking about getting certified. Worth the Cost? Well html be a long term job skill I can rely on?

    What are your thoughts on the future of coding and web development?

    HTML will be here for a long time. HTML4/5 is going to be a core component to the internet for years to come. Its definitely worth looking into.

    You also can't go wrong learning the Adobe Creative Suite and products like Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, and Dreamweaver.

    html, css, javascript, ajax (and associated library).

    never needed a certification to place a front end guy in over 12 years - i.e., I could see them possibly helping in a government/city/state job.

    your portfolio website will speak volumes to your coding skills and will pretty much tell a company if they want you or not.

    and yes, it is a solid career choice.

    Dreamweaver has a good reputation and looks to be positioned to last at least the next few years which is long term in the tech field.

    btw, if you really get into HTML/Javascript, make sure you learn how to hand code in something as simple as notepad.

    I made a career change 2 years ago, becoming a full time web developer. I must say, it has been the best, and smartest decision I have made in my life. Rewarding, high pay, challenging, work for yourself or for a company, and most importantly, in-demand now and for the foreseeable future! Like mentioned before, a strong portfolio and demonstrated skill, surprisingly carries much more weight than a degree or cert in this field. They definitely don't hurt your cause though.

    HTML5 and CSS3 will be around for a while. Dreamweaver is an extremely powerful IDE (integrated development environment), so full mastery will allow you to explore more advanced areas of web development. But Dreamweaver is only a tool. The real skill will come with knowing how to hand code.

    Once marking up content with HTML tags, and styling the marked up content with CSS becomes second nature, learn to use a javascript library like jQuery.

    Those three languages alone have the ability to create web masterpieces.

    Beyond that, you can look into dynamic, or data driven web pages using a database and programming language like PHP and mySQL.



    w3schools.com

    and

    stackoverflow.com

    will quickly become favorites in your browser!


    I can talk web dev all day, PM me if you have any questions that you think I can help with!
