CMS vs Web Developers - Page 2

post #11 of 14
It's also kind of like the ability for almost anyone to change the oil in their vehicle. Doesn't take long to learn how to do it, and is fairly straight forward, same with a CMS installation and setup. A lot of people have no interest to learn how to do either of these things and would rather pay someone to do it for them.

That's the point.
I'm just a dreamer (like in Ozzy's song). Nobody really know how we will evolve. Now we are watching old science-fiction movies and find technologies we already use everyday.

And of course there are always people who don't want to bother and are ready to pay money. The matter is in accessibility and easy-to-use of a product.

You see this kinda question with all sorts of industries like networking. With GUI's and this and that, will they still need network people??? YES. They are creating these tools because there is a big demand for this stuff. Think of the early stages of web development and the quality of pages from back then. They had templates and stuff back then, copy paste cookie cutter sites, and they ran into the same issues as CMS's run into where you can tell its a quick cookie cutter job.

CMS's are fantastic, but you can always tell when a non developer made the site. That last 5% stands out like a sore thumb. My friend opened up a boba tea shop last year, and when i looked at their site, the dropdowns on the nav bar had some items that were not wide enough and wrapped. A developer would just go in, find the CSS class and add white-space nowrap and it would look MUCH better. You see designs that look normal, but does not feel right. Things like pages not scaling right, or you have your 1080 rez , but they locked the width to 600 and just have a TON of whitespace on the sides. Footers that are wonky.... its all there.

CMS are great because it takes 10 seconds to get something out there that looks good. Small companies dont have the 5k or whatever to spend building out a nice site.

I think it was Plan9 on here that mentioned something like he spends a lot of time at work fixing sites where someone just threw together a site with a CMS not knowing what they were doing.
