    Dreamweaver is going to render you meaningless. A butterfly flapped its wings in Nova Scotia.

    ...the need to code is waning.

    I don't know where the author got this idea. Coding is one of the most in-demand job skills right now.

      The products that trigger thoughts like "the need to code is waning" are built by people who "need to code".

    THE DESIGN INDUSTRY HATES HIM

    This is almost a buzzfeed article.

    Don't know why but this article has managed to scare me a little bit.

      It shouldn't. Boag is wrong on a lot of these points. And those that he isn't wrong about apply to a narrow slice of the market rather than the market as a whole.

    In-house teams and SaaS have been on the rise for years now, not sure why 2015 is such a momentous year?

    1 and 2 make plenty of sense to me.

    3 (Code automation) is simply silly, those programs are great for simple websites, which is essentially what #2 (SASS) does as well, it takes away the lower end work but they still cannot compete with front end developer for sustainability and large scale projects.

    4 (Decline of the website) seems a little speculative. I don't really see web declining much, just shifting. Even siri needs the web to work.

      I think it's common to equate the "web" with the internet. The web is just a layer on top of the internet, but it is one of many (though the most popular at the moment).

      Siri needs the internet to work.

    I predict that Paul Boag is wrong, or at the very least too narrowly focused, about a lot of these predictions.
