Here is one disturbing read.
“Real programming”? Come on, sure webdev has its share of people who basically install and use content management systems and adjust appearance without implementing any functionality, but developing software that lives on server and can be used by client computers is as real as it gets.
Frameworks do the low level job for us these days, true. Just as C language does low level job so that programmers don’t have to use machine code. The idea of the lower level programming being more real then high level one is just silly and can do real damage as in above post.
