This is a career direction question: for the past year or so I have been pursuing web development in an effort to transition out of my current industry (non-tech related). I realize these changes take time so putting aside a total change of vocation, for the near future I hoped I could count on this for some serious and steady extra money for my family.
I have however been discouraged of late by finding all the user-friendly, do-it-yourself-in-minutes web development tools which seem to be everywhere. From $30 pre-fab website templates that look pretty decent (sometimes even impressive) to WYSIWYG coding tools that allow people who don't know anything about coding, scripting, etc. to create functional and great looking websites, it seems the market for web development is a narrow gate that one must figure out how to traverse in order to make some reasonable money. I love learning coding but I question if the need to find someone with this specific knowledge isn't dwindling rapidly.
Questions: Is there still money to be made in web development and if so, in what areas specifically? Are there certain specialities that I should learn?
