Ive been developing for the web since about 90 and it keeps going and going.
Nowadays, a bored housewife will stumble on a wordpress template or some flashy software that does all of the work and calls themselves a “webmaster” or “web developer”. But has no idea how it works, how to keep it secure or how to change anything for the client. It’s these hobbyists that give TRUE web devrs a bad name plus help ruin the industry.
For those of you who are REAL designers and developers, might I recommend ModX.
This framework is a borderline portal but its not. It allows you to take any xhtml/css and utilize powers you didnt know possible.
Using snippets, chunks & plugins, you can literLly do anything you want. Give it a whirl.
