Forsake our CMS?! Are you mad?
We sit around the table (again…) hammering out the next version of our website. I ask, “Why don’t we ditch our CMS (Content Management System) and write this one in raw code?” Some furrow brows while others roll their eyes. Not without reason. The CMS industry exists so web masters don’t have to be code ninjas to make fancy sites play nice. CMS providers offer packages that, more or less, work right out of the box. Fill in appropriate blanks with your organizations’s name, logo, tag line, add some content and, voilà, a useable website materializes.
