    Cool Advancing to CMS in the future

    I've decided to put learning any CMS off til later, once i master html, css. learn php and j. Then move onto CMS. A few professionals told me CMS is good when you don't want to have to update your clients website all the damn time when they have little adjustments, they can do it themselves.

    my question is, if I choose to go without CMS for let's say like 5-10 clients...doing it regular way, where I adjust everything for them when they ask.....and as work load gets strenuous or I just frankly don't want to do it anymore.....can you then take the already made website and move it to a content management system (cms) so they can start updating they're own little fixes here and there. Or would you have to completely remake the site on the CMS? If I need to be more clear let me know.

    Absolutely.

    Only if you have really poorly written code that’s not scalable. If you write clean, semantic HTML (and unobtrusive JavaScript, if you wanna go that route) then migrating at any time won’t be an issue.
