The death of “front-end developers”

Here in Brazil we are doing the same. To me we have only two distinct sides in web development:

  • First side is design. Here where we create all the visuals, interactions, interfaces, wireframes, researchs, interviews etc etc etc and CSS, Semantic HTML, pixel-perfect layout to code, jQuery and JS to interface and so on.
  • And the other side is the programming side. Where we put all functionalities to work. In this side we work with logic thinks, APIs, design pattern codes, performance, back-end code using traditional languages and JavaScript.

We don’t need this fragmentation that we have today in Design or Code sides. Where we have one person to one responsibility. I believe we need more T-Shaped professionals.

But, I want your opinion about an article I wrote theses days. What you think?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
