The Second Dynasty of 75th Trombone
25 June 2020 - current
There was a time when a little HTML and CSS knowledge could make a lucrative career. But these days we front-end developers are feeling the squeeze from two sides.
On the other side are the page builders. They go by many names — Squarespace, Wix, Divi, Avada — but their common goal is to enable the masses to build websites with zero web development knowledge. They are of various success in meeting this goal, and they each commit a various number of abominations in their pursuit of it.
The time may be coming when you Designers are the sole people building marketing sites, and the Reactheads and Webpack weenies have cornered the market on functional web apps, leaving front-end specialists like me unemployed and destitute.
Fortunately, I, the Lead Developer on this project, find your cause infinitely more admirable than theirs.
So I have chosen what I consider to be the most worthy of the page builders, Elementor, as the tool with which you Designers will supplant me. I will teach you about it as best I can, and the best among you will be promoted to Creative Director, at which point I will leave you to maintain your glorious new creation.
Replace all instances in the ruleset of “Player” (except the first instance in Rule 4.4.4) with “Designer”, and all instances of “Emperor” with “Lead Developer”.
This dynasty began during the previous dynasty and all players had to reactivate, so a list of players active at the start makes very little sense.
