Who should buy this book?
This book shows you how to build a dynamic website for a virtual organisation using Macromedia Studio MX 2004. It describes the complete process for building a site from the planning of the project to the uploading of the files to the server. The book is mainly for intermediate users as it assumes a basic understanding of the products within Studio MX 2004 but it doesn't provide you with the skills to master the tools in the studio. The book is best used by people in an organisation. From project managers, to programmers to designers.
The strong point of the book is that it covers a lot of interesting ground and that you can download the project files from the publisher's website. Sadly the book has got some small errors in it, such as wrong file names and other text errors. However it will do a wonderful job of showing you how all the software of the MX 2004 suite works together to optimize your workflow.
