I'm a fullstack dev specialised on backend webdev (5+ years).
I have zero experience with eCommerce.
Given that anyone can set up an online shop these days thanks to Shopify, Woo, etc. Is there still any room where a programmer has some competitive edge over the non-programmer?
A few ideas come to mind: – webscraping products off of marketplaces – automating reporting and other business operations
But given how saturated the market is with solutions building a custom eCom shop from scratch or a custom plugin for a wordpress shop is probably just reinventing the wheel.
So to the programmers in this space, how are you applying your programming skills?
