This post was inspired by another post at ManageWP on the future of website development. In short, the author is stating that web development as an industry is changing its nature. Today you can have a nice looking site with most up to date functionality for $10/month (or so) from companies like GoDaddy, Weebly or SquareSpace. His argument is that web development as we know it is gone.
The post is followed by a few comments on the uselessness of the post and the ideas. I couldn’t leave it without posting a comment and stating my view on the matter. In this post I’m doing an extended version of that comment.
