I found this today and thought it was interesting. Where are you on the chart?
they forgot the dip where you think you understand more than you do and drop back from "kick ass" to "suck"
and shouldn't the very top level be "I'm kingtoad" ?
Drupal is too complex, at least for me. I don't think I'll ever reach the top of the learning curve. I've been developing solely in Drupal for the last year and it seems every single project I'm learning something new. I browse the community and see people with levels of skill I don't expect myself to be seeing anytime soon.
One step above the "I suck threshold".
I feel the same way when dealing with both expression engine and joomla! I have worked in both of these two CMS's for over two years now. Both myself and my programmers learn something new with every project.
Whether it is the CMS community or the web design community as a whole, I continually find people that use web design in new and interesting ways (On both the development and design side).
I guess that is the reason I love my job.
I love Drupal.
Bottom left of the graph since I never touched drupal.
Expression engine is difficult to master?
I imagine there's a lot of challenges to face with Expression engine being that it's community is small and module availability isn't quite extensive with Expression engine as it is to Drupal. Because of this, many programmers may find themselves writing custom modules to Expression engine to achieve the functionality they desire.
I had a huge love/hate relationship with Drupal the first time I used it. Fact that 6.x had just been released didn't help either.
Right now I'm working with Joomla, but I have to use the 1.0 version ugh.
in between navigation and kingtoad somewhere.
closer to navigation, though.
a lot closer.
I made it about two steps inside of the "kick ass threshold" and gave up. Fawking shit takes tooooooo long to write modules for.
Really? I think all the available API's within Drupal make make development a lot faster and easier.
I need not to say anymore, that is exactly what we have to deal with in expression engine. One of our major reason of using the expression engine is a far cleaner CMS then Joomla or Drupal (which means it is easier for clientele to understand). However, the majority of our modules and custom framework has to come from the ground up and not from preexisting libraries.
I love drupal, so much you can do with it. And it helps when you have a person like kingtoad you can ask questions.
Honestly, it was probably such a bitch because it wasn't the best platform for me in the first place.
Aren't you happy I convinced you to use Drupal?
Working on the step above theme/module development..
I hate all CMSes, including the ones I write!
