Really weird
No substance to anything we do.
This was arranged by payment platform Paystack but they could have chosen something better to celebrate.

Drag and drop applications is not what developers spend more than 5% of their time doing. Developers create the drag and drop applications 95% of the time or at least improve it. Java, ruby, pearl, javascript, all the Cs, and other assembly languages is for developers. Anyway sha, whatever rocks the boat, every mile begins with a step.

I dislike wordpress ,its amateur and limiting

It is not limiting. It is a base application. Big world-class sites like BBC CNN are created using WordPress and alikes... It is OO

Instead of them to be celebrating Democracy and our hero of Democracy, President Muhammadu Buhari, the best president Nigeria has ever had.

“President Muhammadu Buhari and Nyerere are the only African leaders who do not have foreign account”

So because they are developers they shouldn't celebrate a breakthrough in their industry simply because they were not the one that created it?

Sense fall on all the posters above saying thrash.

You can encourage them to dream and build something different but celebrating WordPress is not a bad thing. In fact this type of meeting should even be encouraged as it gives the rather lonely developers time to meet with one another and share ideas.

I prefer a customized website built from scratch than WordPress. if you want to build a big sophisticated website with room for expansion in the future,top security, and high level privacy,etc. custom is much better . Customized products will always be better than generic products .
facebook ,youtube,amazone,etc are customized website. Facebook is worth 400 billion dollars, youtube is worth 40 billion dollars,Amazon is worth 120 billion dollars.
Facebook has over 60,000 servers which keeps increasing everyday. they're all kept in a vast cooler . Facebook has over 62 million lines of coding which keeps expanding everyday.
A lot of developers today are too lazy and prefer the easy way out .

The goal is to achieve what you want within the shortest possible time. I won’t spend 3 weeks coding a web app from the scratch when I can customise a template. No one pays for how hard u worked, result is key!

Misleading topic: OP should just rename this topic aready It should be;

Nigerian Bloggers Celebrate Wordpress 15th Anniversary

Save for Paystack who developed wordpress plugin for their payment platform, Nigerian developers would rather invest their time in custom software than building a plugin for a CMS.

Well I use WordPress for quick jobs, quick money, quick website, quick 1 week delivery and move on to my better software development.

Am a freelance developer good in web application development, JAVA and Android dev. but am open to take up a full time job to horn my team work skills and take my career up notch.

Here is my contact if anyone might be of help
O813_1616_439

I can send my CV if need be.

You are right, the OP didn't know what is the difference between a designer and a developer. Most people on that pix are designers not developers. I guess the OP did some misinterpretation.

it depends on what you want to achieve, if a website needs just a handful of functions, then wordpress is the way tk go but when you start talking of websites as products, api stuff, then you need to code....as for me I code all through, I don't even use frameworks.....got my own library

Nigerian developers should work together to create their own free and open-source content management system based on PHP and MySQL

The more those works are easy the more you loose your programming skills. The more we become consumers instead of producers.

In IT u can't cut shortcut to be a producer. Wordpress users are users and not developers.

They are developers when another developer is building operating systems and embedded systems.
