You single out CMS, but think about everything else out there. There are all kinds of custom object oriented scripts out there that handle a wide array of things. I never really thought web development could make a full time career. Especially when there are people out there willing to code for free.
Look at Linux, and all of the open source packages that go along with it. Linux is striving, and people still have jobs dealing with computer programming.'
Personally I am very thankful for all of the open source free code out there. I have an instructor who told me if there is a project out there I really like I should get involved with it and commit even the slightest contribution to help keep it going.
I am a huge fan of Word Press. just because a website is using wordpress doesn't mean that coders won't be needed. Word Press could need modifications, themes might need to be built, etc. There will always need to be someone to maintain these CM systems. Maybe less people now than in the past, but that is the case with all types of work.
If you're concerned about losing a job as a web developer hopefully you are skilled in computer programming languages, or at least basic networking.
I would hate to think of what the internet would be like without Word Press, PhpBB, and all of those other free content management system.
