Joomla vs WordPress: what is best choice for you to make?

18 November 2014

Joomla vs wordpress competition since 2005 has seen user base of Joomla rise and fall and WordPress continues to be the dominant, most popular content management system (CMS) for powering websites.  In fact, the range of free and low-cost pre-designed WordPress themes is also driving a stake into the heart of web designers around the world.

Joomla came onto the market towards the end of 2005, early 2006 and quickly overtook WordPress, which had about a year and a half head start.  But, Joomla peaked around 2009 and has since steadily declined in popularity, downloads, installs, and usage.  Meanwhile, WordPress has steadily marched upward and took a huge spike in 2014 when it raised over $200M in venture capital valuating the organization at over one billion dollars.

Most interesting is that the search for web designers has slowly and steadily fallen during this same time frame.  We saw it with photography, just like the rise and fall of Polaroid and Kodak, web designers are becoming somewhat of a dinosaur industry.  While there will always be a need for web designers, the fact is that we don’t need nearly as many of them as we used to.  All we need now are some designers to to design high quality frameworks that we can apply to content management systems such as WordPress.

Gone are the days when we used to spend tens of thousands of dollars on art directors and web designers to custom design a website.  Now, if that kind of money is being spent, it is being invested in usability, front-end development, and back-end customization.

If you are considering a career in web development, you should master WordPress, Drupal, front-end development, mobile development, and custom back-end development technologies and languages such as PHP and Python.

Testimonials


  • I contacted Whitehats through their website and was immediately served by a customer service agent. I briefly explained my concern and gave my contact details. The same day in the afternoon I was contacted by an IT engineer and we scheduled a date for a visit to my apartment. Upon arrival the next day the engineer was polite, professional and confident and got the job done in an appropriate manner. I’m very satisfied with the service provided by Whitehats and plan to contact them in case of any future services. Therefore I would also recommend them for any IT related services.
