ecosystem universe. I am a relative newb, but when i put it out there to my contacts that i could develop websites, the requests i got were specifically for wordpress. strange, i thought but that is that way of the world i guess. i designed a site in wordpress for a physical therapy practice - this was my first ever job in web dev. they wanted to keep up with their competition who used…wordpress.
as a side note. i ended up buying the avada theme. wow. you can do some amazing things with zero coding skills. i think someone else mention it, but the only code i really used was some additional css to get things exactly how i wanted them. i added a couple behind the scenes things that required only minor messing around with the db, php files and server files, but that was really minor stuff.
as another side note. i have had weirdly negative responses from other developers that seem to resent wp for some reason, but that is another story entirely. i think wp is incredible. good luck to you in your chosen path.
