Framework is the new CMS *narf*
I guess this spiralled from the CMS talk, I went on to look for CMS systems that would offer me more than just a CMS, like Intranet and maybe Client management/relations tools and so on. *poit* And I got to the conclusion that Frameworks are the new CMS systems, and it all makes a sense, if you think about it, the personal web space or page has changed in to a blog and any web application other than that are forums, galleries (also goes to the gategory of blog) and CMS' If you want to make a personal page and you don't know anything about coding, a blogging tool like WP, MT and TXP are your best shots. But if you really need to do a CMS you have to learn a great deal of stuff, the CMS systems are complex, so why not learn few things about a framework and really do something amazing, talking about thinking outside the box, how about actually working outside the proverbial box. Frameworks these days are not that much more complicated than your average CMS application which range from impossible to medicore, but in terms of features you can't even start to compare them against each other. I know framework is abused buzzword like web 2.0 but I'm talking about real frameworks like Django, CakePHP and Ruby on Rails here. So voice your opinion, would you learn how to use hard to figure out CMS or would you learn a framework and use it to do everything from CMS and Intranet to E-Commerce and Webmail.
