Personally, I've been doing software for 30 years, and have been hearing 
about the developer going away ever since the first '4th Generation 
Language.'  It simply won't happen. Anything that can account for every 
client's wishes would simply be too bloated and abstracted to be of any 
use. As it is, I make more money modifying Drupal sites right now than I 
do with scratch sites. It has only cut down on development requirement 
with regards to content management (which not every site is) and the 
admin panel development no the back-end to support it, but not on the 
modifications that clients need. It's been an income boost.  I think 
what my story really shows is that clients still don't know anything 
about software, but think, more and more, that they do.
