"web developers are a dime a dozen"

No, people that know HTML are a dime a dozen. It's true that web developers are becoming common in CS, I mean everything is web based now and there's a low barrier of entry. But web devs still get paid well when they know what they're doing, and that means that demand hasn't plummeted like everyone suggests.

    Not to mention that a lot of "web developers" don't even know HTML. They just use some drag and drop editor and then dump a rat's nest of code in their client's lap that takes 3 minutes to load.

    @adamyeti seriously? I spent like 6 months hard core grinding HTML/CSS/JS tutorials and code alongs online to land my first internship. Im in my early 20s but just got my first front-end full time position at a fortune 500 recently, I assumed that this was considered normal for web dev in the US

    @Crazed It is, but that doesn't mean some teenager with a visual design program can't snag random clients with the promise of a low price... In no way did I imply that these people were getting web dev jobs at actual companies though lol

    @adamyeti ah I see, to me a web developer either has years of experience (so they can hold up to professionals) or they code professionally.

    Also sorry if I come across a little blunt. Im drunk. Perks of being in school.

    @Crazed a real web developer, yes. That's why I said "web developer" in quotes ;)

    And no worries, I don't take anything too seriously around here
