SharePoint 2013 is not just a collection of lists and libraries anymore. It is a big product with lots of built-in out of the box services. We as SharePoint developers used to build a lot on the top of SharePoint, but with rapidly growing product functionality, there is less need for developing custom code. In fact there is more need for consultants that they know SharePoint out of the box services and features and they also know how to configure and use them. The new generation of SharePoint architects, have deep understanding of built-in services and their limits so that they can decide whether to develop custom code or just enable a built-in Service. This approach makes SharePoint development quick and dramatically reduces the cost of maintenance and support.
