    From one developer to the other...it doesn't matter what language(s) you learn. It doesn't matter what frameworks you learn. It doesn't matter what CMSes you learn. None of that matters.

    What matters...and what makes one a brilliant web developer (or not a brilliant web developer)...is the ability to apply what you've learned to your potential target market. If you know PHP but you can't solve a client's problem because you can't understand it even though it's relatively simple or because the client can't lay it out in a spec doc for you, you're not a brilliant web developer. If you don't know where or when to use WordPress and insist on using it for things such as e-commerce, you're not a brilliant web developer. If you can figure these sorts of things out, and if you can take a situation where you don't know something, find it out on the fly, and apply it...then you're a brilliant web developer.

    Hope that makes sense.

    You have some matching situation like me. the same question come into my mind but i think i have the answer too. To be a good web developer: you are already a good web developer. But I think you want be a brilliant programer. I got my answer to the same question for me and that is. Be a brilliant Programer instead of web developer. You will feel the difference.

    It sounds as though you are already a developer but you would like to know people source your services more frequently?

    Build yourself a portfolio, advertise your services, create informative and relevant blogs, make maximum use of social media, follow web trends, ensure your work follows modern practices and keep learning :-)
