So I have a CS6 books and Dreamweaver 6. My goal is to set out and make a site that a user can register on, create an account, and then select multiple options. These options are then updated weekly from a database and the user's choices are there updated and compared with other users.
I know some HTML and a little bit of Java. Am I getting in too far over my head? Are there any decent tutorials that show some of these aspects?
This is advanced work, and learning Dreamweaver will no more give you the skills to do it than learning Autocad would make you an architect.
But I don't mean to discourage you. If you are really motivated and have a year to kill, go for it, and start with PHP Solutions by David Powers because PHP is the language most of us would use for 90% of this project.
