Yes! Yes! Dreamweaver is Dead. Now Stop Using It!

This post has stuff about religion. My perspective has changed

Web 2.0 isn’t an empty slogan, it marks a fundamental break with the past and Dreamweaver lies on the wrong side of it.

Here’s a rant for those of you using Dreamweaver (sorry): Dude, it’s dead. Stop writing HTML . The only time I EVER write HTML is when I create a template from scratch. Know how often that is? Um, almost never. I came up with a solution that works for everything and I’ve stuck with it. My CMS of choice does the rest. Same thing at work.

Don’t waste your time writing HTML by hand. Seriously, learn something that will make you money in the future like .NET or PHP and a framework. Learn about OAuth, XFN and OpenId. Learn about Social Networking. That’s where it’s at right now.
