DBLDUTCH, inc.: Designing Development™


I’ve been working with some very cool clients, who are doing some very impressive stuff (more on that soon, I promise). But their in-house designer has been using Dreamweaver to build a lot of their websites which I am now helping them update and maintain. I’ve tinkered with Dreamweaver, but found it easier to get things the way I want across browsers coding by hand with tools like Aptana which offers really nice code-completion and coloring.
