Hard core coders?

I like DW and recently it's intelisense for files is very helpful. Lack of server behaviours seems to conflict with their Developers thinking it's moving to complement more hard core coders. Maybe they are planning some server behaviours of their own? Updated and re-released?

I've been in this market since 1994. I hire programmers and learned to program myself out of need to be able to better manage programmers. INterack etc were all part of the quiver of tools and in the past few years the Competition is Squarespace, Wix and WordPress jockeys that take a professionally designed theme and run with it... Makes it tough for those of us that can create/design/code from the ground up.

I've fought Wordpress adaption for years but recently redesigned my site with Wordpress as I need to publish a lot of textual pages for SEO competition. I've been really keeping an open mind to what I thought was heresy for a proper designer. Child Themes and coding within Wordpress seems like a basic skill we all need these days.

So for the future of coders, extensions etc, I'm thinking Wordpress, writing widgets and plugins should be at least kept in everyone's minds.

Regarding DMXZones choice to produce a standalone code generator, I think it's a great idea. I own a bunch of their plugins but don't use them as I need to manipulate code by hand too often. Even WebAssist could better if they had less proprietary functions so we could all grow our programming skills that much more. I still use Zend Studio (Eclipse) but fall back to DW because of it's visual (Design) window to quickly navigate to the code needed to be worked on.

If WebAssist has a stand alone code generator that toggled between placement on a DW page, that could free WA from DWs issues.

Position cursor, click WA query builder and a standalone app binds to the DB and allows creation of queries. Then figure how to drag and drop from the separate application to the DW code view and we're set. No need focus on Design in WA as that is our own unique elements and many of us create these based on Bootstrap anyways.

Focus on the hard core coder stuff that makes us crank out and modify code efficiently and you have a captured and appreciative market.
