Dreamweaver in 2016, flash and excell for project layout or design?
Dreamweaver in 2016, flash and excell for project layout or design? In 2015 and 2016, how are these?
At college they are , well 'teaching' us this... well, not me.. but i still need to do it 'theirs' way.. so i will need to waste time.. because they say dreamweaver and stuff will get us almost to job ready position to work in a web industry.. with no coding! And you will use tables, and excell and flash .. like really..
I just want some facts so i can go and have a strong talk to the departament there and i want not to waste time , i mean.. i already did a stie for someone.. coding and stuff.. i just don't want to waste time as this is 3months old unit..
A little bit messy but could someone give me some tips and so on please?

I wonder what kind of work programs your college have in mind for you. Are they preparing you to go out on work placements with companies that use these kinds of programs?
I have Dreamweaver on CS5. I used to swear by it but now I do my coding through notepad++ and where I can, going into Chrome Dev Tools and testng my CSS on the fly before I add it to notepad.
I'd say programs like Dreamweaver are used less and less unless they lack the skills to code by hand.
Flash still has legs I think because I hear they don't just use the WebGL flash animation anymore but also use HTML5 and other platforms. I had a lot of fun with flash down the years but I seldom have time to use it any more. Lost the knack :)

I don't even know. I mean it's not hard to see they're not even close to the mark. I'd ask them to prove to you that these are the technologies used.
