it has its flaws

everyone on here uses it differently. Some use it as a notepad, handcoding as they go (me) others use every wizard going and then complain there arnt enough wizards and would scream if they caught a glimps of code.

In my opinion i would concentrate on your skills (coding) then you wont fall into any traps dreamweaver may have lying around waiting for you to fall into them.

Think of dreamweaver as a tool that helps you out by providing some HTML shortcuts rather than a do-everything-so-i-dont-have-to-know-anything IDE

too many people call themselves web developers when really its dreamweaver who is doing the development and the user is just pushing buttons.

remember that clients are not techies. And by calling yourself a web developer you are pissing in a wasp nest.
They will ask for a beveled button and an ecommerce solution in the same sentence and will no way differentiate between them. The wont want to know the difference either!

concentrate on your skills and prove to them you can do the job by learning to code

i can teach you to code and use dreamweaver to write the code that communicates with a database but i refuse to help those who fall into the many traps that using the dreamweaver only development method attracts

if you want to learn something useful then try these

Dreamweaver has support for several scripting languages that use DB.
