Developing sites with DWT and FrontPage 2003

Posted on April 17, 2006. Filed under: Clients, Main, Microsoft, Web Development |

I’ve just finished the pre-production on a web site for Gator Elevator, Inc., a Hollywood, FL based elevator company.  It’s in the second round of reviewing by the owners, and should be published live within the week.  This was an interesting project for me.  I’m used to using FrontPage, but this is the first time I’ve experimented with Dynamic Working Templates.  They’re great to use if the customer wants to maintain and update the site’s content after it’s completed, but a bit frustrating to get set up if you’re modifying a DWT, instead of writing your own from scratch.

I’ve recently found out that this will be the last version of FrontPage released.  Some people will stand up and cheer, others, like me, are a bit disheartened.  Oh, well.  It seems that FP will be replaced in its entirety by products built on SharePoint technology.  So now the question is, do I learn to use the new Expression Web Designer, or cross over to Macromedia/Adobe Dreamweaver?  Any ideas, just post them in the comments.
