Building a website without extensive web development experience is becoming easier, thanks to content management systems (CMS)—platforms that offer the ability to build, design, and customize good-looking sites with little to no code.
Building a site with a CMS has advantages: site owners have the power to update a site easily and as often as they want. Even basic administrative tasks—things like publishing content, SEO optimization, plugins, and managing multiple users—typically require little to no programming experience. They’re not totally turnkey, however. When it comes to customizing and extending a site built on WordPress, for example, a developer’s expertise can help turn a basic, out-of-the-box site into a totally unique, powerful solution.
