I know many people will argue on this topic but this is very important for someone who has decided to pursue only front-end web development as a career.
So I will explain you with the following reasons why front-end web development is not good as a career.
- Increased used of CMS software like WordPress, Drupal and Jumla is dominating the web development industry.
- Domination of website builders, code builders, templates and wysiwyg editor (what you see is what you get editor).
- Increased use of social media especially Facebook pages, social- forums, social bookmarking sites and directory listing.
- Freelancers are dominating the front-end web development career by working on cheap wages.
- If you are owner of a small business so don’t spend money or time in learning just hire some tech savvy person for front-end web development.
- For blogging use sites like Medium or Tumblr they also have the monetization option.
- For some businesses buying a full fledged site will cheaper in comparable to hire someone.
- Nowadays many e-commerce sites allow you to list your products on their site for example Amazon, Flipkart and many others.
My main point is not to discourage you to pursuing web development career but make you aware of cutthroat competition present in industry. I can guarantee considering to be a full stack web developer will definitely give you advantages in your career.
