Amazon-like…

Q: After completing this class, are we able to create websites such as http://www.Amazon.com or only simple website as we did normally using frontpage templetes ?

A: It depends…
What about the Amazon site are you interested in replicating?

Their site is huge and really complex – massive databases, distributed cloud hosting, transaction processing, security, customer accounts, purchase history, vendor payment, referers, recommendations, advertising, proprietary preferential display algorithms, …

Much of this is beyond the scope of this introductory class that focuses on using HTML and CSS directly (under the hood of FrontPage, etc). Most of the complexity and functionality of the Amazon site comes from programs that interface with the web through HTML and CSS. By the end of the CIS89A course you will have all the basic tools necessary to connect with the programming, applications and internet systems necessary for building an Amazon-like site.
