Dreamweaver 8: ColdFusion Application Development provides students with the knowledge and hands-on practice they need to build and manage dynamic websites using Dreamweaver and ColdFusion. In this course, you’ll learn how to connect to a database, search and display results, and build a page to update the database.  If you’ve always dreamed of building a more advanced, data-powered site, but didn't know where to start, then this course is for you.


This course is for people new to Dreamweaver (or who have used it only to build static web sites) that want to use it to create data-driven web applications. To take this course, you should:

  • Be comfortable working with the Windows or Macintosh operating system.
  • Be familiar with web terminology.
  • Be comfortable with what is required to develop a static web application.
  • Have completed the Macromedia Dreamweaver 8: Website Development course or have equivalent experience.
