lately, web development has become very complex. People being full-stack developers often complain to me that they can’t care about all these cool things in front-end development. People doing front-end still complain about having too few things to control the website, make it faster, more reliable.

This growing gap worries me about the future of usual websites. For big web applications and big websites, it’s great to have all the options and a dedicated front-end performance engineer. But what about an average website? A simple website for a painter can’t cost thousands of dollars.

Do we indeed lose individuality by moving our process towards templates-based design? I hope not. I hope we find a way to simplify our workflows again within the framework of web standards, and that we’ll be able to communicate them clearly so everyone in the industry can make use of them. Let’s pull this trigger together. And if you have a story to share, about the workflows you are using or the toolset you prefer, just add it to the comments or send me an email.
