It’s the invasion of the lightweights.
And last night some guy who writes code using Rails and CodeIgniter hears that some WordPress guy is suggesting that people may want to use WordPress as an application platform. Much like every programmer before him, he can’t see it. He’s a hard core programmer. He likes his hard core tools. And he looks at the tools that new programmers might use (in this case WordPress), and all he sees are lightweights.
WordPress is definitely serious business, but taking it seriously sometimes is honestly hard. Sometimes WordPress as a tool is not quite right, sometimes it’s great. It depends. I’ve made my best work with WordPress. That is all.
