Try to tell that to the new people learning programming. All of them learning about web development to only create beautiful screen.

I suppose it all depends on your goals. Web development using $WEB_DEV_PLATFORM_DU_JOUR creates an initial perception of rapid progress. If you are one of us that is tasked with completing a complex project all the way to sustainable production, then traditional computer science concepts and tools become essential.

With rapid changing market, it is better to build a quick and dirty prototype. However, I do agree that a strong understanding of CS concepts is fundamental.

By the way, do you speak French? What with "DU_JOUR"?

"it is better to build a quick and dirty prototype'
Again, this depends on your goals. As a consultant I only get paid for a working product. If you are working as an employee, then the best strategy is to throw together the prototype, get some kudos, and move on to the next project.
Sadly I do not speak French. "du jour" is a French phrase adopted by English speakers for some time.
