Why Web Development is Dying? (Major Causes)

Although, there were numerous scopes and opportunities available in the market for good web developers, because of some causes web development is dying and here in this section, I have discussed the facts why web development is decreasing day by day.

CMS:

There were numerous content management systems there and with the help of this CMS’s platforms people can easily make websites.

Some CMS platforms like WordPress and Joomla provides very good functions and features for developing websites, and in these CMS platforms provides you with all the feature- such as you can pick a theme according to your choice for the designing purpose of your websites. If you are facing some problems then you can use plugins to resolve those problems. Or if you want to add your website to search engines then you can also do that in a very comfortable manner by using these platforms.

And, because of these CMS platforms, the normal web development is decreasing day by day instead of that, we can say that web developers’ demand is decreasing day by day.

Time:

Time is one of the major issues in web development. If you want to learn web development then you have to gain some skills in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and some other kinds of frameworks, and to learn all these things you have to spend lots of time. While at the same time you can learn these CMS systems within much lesser time.

And if you don’t know about web development then you have to hire some developers to build the website, and the developer needs some time to build the website. At the same time if you want to build with the help of content management systems then you just have to spend 2 to 3 hours.

So, because of saving time, most people were shifting towards CMS platforms instead of doing self-coding.

Cost:

If we compare the website development cost then we will notice that with the help of CMS platforms we can build any kind of website within just 3000 rupees to 5000 rupees, while at the same time if you want to hire some developer to build any website then that developer approximately charge around 10000 rupees to 15,000 rupees.

These are some of the essential causes of why web development is decreasing day by day, now in the below section, I have discussed why web development jobs are dying.

Are Web Development Jobs Dying?

Well, if you noticed any kind of job website like naukri.com indeed.com then you will notice that there are two kinds of jobs which are mostly provided one is a content writing job and another is a website development or website design job.

So it is not true that web development jobs are dying, on average 5 lakh websites are launching on the Internet and to develop all those websites and design those web sites web developers are always required.

Based on the facts it is proved that web development jobs are not dying it is increasing day by day there were numerous aspects of web development. Or there were numerous works of web development that you can do- such as you can work as a front-end developer as a back-end developer as a database developer as an SQL developer and lots of other things.

Will Web Development Die In the Future?

This is one of the most popular questions that people have asked me, what will be the future of web development? and they are mainly concerned about the CMS platforms. There are numerous CMS platforms available such as WordPress, Joomla, and Wix and because of these CMS systems, most people think that web development is going to die but that is not correct.

I have been working in web development for the last 3 to 4 years and I have also heard this question a lot. Here I mention some of the true facts about why web development is not going to be dead in the future-

Design:

If you are a website builder then you know very well that the attractiveness of a website is a very crucial factor of SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and if you are using some content management systems like Wix, WordPress then you cannot customize the whole website according to your choice.

You have to customize it based on some themes and in this case, a web developer plays such an important role a web developer or designer can customize or design the websites based on desires and wishes.

Control:

If you are using some CMS platforms then you know that all of your website dashboard details- like login details, content details, and services details will remain in their hand. And therefore, if you are using some cms platforms then all of your website’s privacy, not remain in your hand.

That is not the case with self-coded web self-development, because here all of your website information remains in your hand, and therefore your website’s privacy also remains in your hand.

Hacking:

Most of the time, the content management systems used shared hosting to host your website which is very cheap.

But at the same time, there might be a possibility that if hackers hack your hosting then your website details can easily be hacked. So, for this purpose self-coded website is very much protected because there is very little chance for your website hacking.
