That sagging back end

A would-be Web developer is having second thoughts after reading this:

“Everyone and his mother is hopping onto uDemy and buying a **** ton of courses on Web Development. The entire field has become saturated with assholes who are able to provide top dollar results for bottom ***** prices. With the emergence of Wix and Squarespace, it’s possible for any ol’ goobertron to skip the uDemy fuckabout entirely and just squeeze out a 6 pack of mcnuggies themselves. Why should anybody even entertain the thought of jumping into Web Development with the delusion of competing against everyone from Bangladesh to Silicon Valley? Why should anyone drag their pert nutsack across the Sahara of broken beer bottles and vinegar that is Web Development, to appease some crossed-eyed goon ************ who pays only a pittance and ultimately considers you nothing more than a necessary evil and will fire you the moment his computer genius whiz kid of a nephew figures out how to use Squarespace?”

I’m guessing Mom and all realize that it’s “Udemy” and not “uDemy.”

For what it’s worth, a seriously cute couple a few blocks over hung out their shingle as a design and development house twelve years ago. Now it’s a seriously cute couple plus a staff of three. (I am not in a position to judge nutsack pertness.)

    I gave up doing web development when my old church that I had volunteered my services for 15 years suddenly decided they wanted to pay some out of state company several thousand dollars per year to make and maintain a new website. This after I had completed a redesign and apps for basically free. I also quit the church as a parishioner.
