I’m considering signing up for a certification program in Basic Website Design and Management. Courses and books cover programs such as Javascript, CSS, Dreamweaver CS3, etc. I don’t have the money to purchase programs like Dreamweaver right now.

What programs are available to me for tinkering for free? I want to purchase a book or two and work on these skills before I choose to sign up for the program. Any other suggestions, such as books to buy, are helpful as well.

  1. I maintain a page of links to client-side programming resources at:


    There links to (free) tools, online learning resources and articles, books (not free, but they are the best of breed), related to CSS, XHTML, JavaScript, etc. – all the non-proprietary aspects of web-dev. Start there.

    No Dreamweaver (proprietary, commercial)
