Community Opinion: Would you rather develop a site from the ground up or use a CSM to do the heavy lifting?
This is something that I wrestle with a lot. Of course the answer depends greatly on many factors such as one's skills, confidence level, and the amount of time you have to invest in the project.
As I learn more and more through Treehouse I am getting away from the WordPress camp, even though I have played around with it a good bit over the last few years. I think there are several reasons why that is.
- I want to know how everything on my site works
- I don't want to have to debug other code that I may not understand completely
- I see building everything as a way to learn, expand my skills, and put it all into practice
On the other hand there are many aspects of web development and design I do not know. I am not afraid to learn, but I am also not an expert in things like account security. That is a major factor for my reasoning as to why I would use a system such as WordPress.
