Hate to say this, but NO, NO and a big NO.

Designers yes - web designers NO.

A good web designer needs some fundamental architecture skills that are derived from math or science classes which teach you how to break down a problem into smaller bits, which bits to solve first and some fundamental boolean logic.

A good web designer is not someone who throws in bootstrap, jquery and some pretty shit on a website. He/She understand how to break down the HTML/JS/CSS into smaller meaningful bits, how to include these bits depending on where and when they're needed. They understand how benchmarking goes (how long does it take a web server to respond, if the stack is sending a 1MB response from Alaska to Brisbane ..).

I could go on and on about how much I've started to HATE people who copy paste shit, buy a theme, tweak a few colors, find some jquery snippets and animate a headline and go on to call themselves web designers.

I am sure there is a very significant technical challenge getting those awesome aircraft back in the air and more importantly getting them back on the ground safely. However, the link is pure and simple link bait and an extremely low quality rehash of the official website.

I assumed coming from a publication like Network World, there would be some geekery in the article... but was left sadly disappointed.

I very seriously agree ... but as a small "community" business, we do need an app or two to allow our users to connect with our websites. Simple things like push messaging to send them notifications, lean data delivery (no need to deliver entire html pages for every pageview) etc etc.

So, the choice is - do we choose a single hybrid framework and learn that, or do we develop for IOS / Android / Windows phones natively and learn three things?

In terms of frameworks etc.. .as long as we can communicate to a PHP / MySQL driven back end, which spits out JSON / XML - the front end can be redone over some time. I think...
