If you are planning to become a web developer then you must be coming across the term CMS very frequently. All the development companies now get you in front of latest CMS. Moreover, you’ll be advertising your clients that your site uses CMS.
Lets take a look at what CMS is…
CMS is abbreviation of Content Management System. It is a piece of software that allows you to add, remove and edit content on website.
WordPress, Joomla and Drupal are examples of most widely used CMS, but there are many more types of CMS available to user and surprisingly most of them are free of cost.
There are several reasons to use CMS. First and foremost reason is that it saves your valuable time and this leads to creativity. Now you must be thinking that how saving time is improving creativity. Most of the time when web developer is developing a website then he and his team is suppose to finish the project before deadline. Its forbidden to think for a developer that what will happen if he misses the deadline. Now if everything is made so easy that you don’t have to take much care about HTML’s and FTP’s then you have lots and lots of time to think about way your website looks.
A word of caution, We need to keep in mind is that a client is required to empowered. This means that he can manage his contents easily. But giving clients more choices and abilities to mess around with their website isn’t the same thing as empowering them. We might really just be hampering them and slowing them down with too many options, features and doodads.
