    so it is not worth it for you , but for us it does , and we won't always be employees , after sometime we can do our own business .
    the field will always be there , but in different ways . it is changing but not dying. so we need to cope with it over time

      Very underrated comment right here. I believe you hit the nail on the head. I always loved the idea of coding but was very intimidated with all the coding languages out there (btw i'm 40). But ever since GPT4 came out i actually been building stuff... like real working stuff. My jaw dropped when i suddenly over night "felt" like i was a programmer with the help of AI of course. Anyway, pardon my rambling.... I believe more people will get into programming because of how easy it's becoming. It will attract more attention because building your own custom "Tools" has become a reality to anyone who's able to use natural language to communicate what they want to these AI tools. And they are getting better at a faster pace than it would take the average person to get a degree in computer science. Programming IS in demand now more than ever before. You can still make money from it, you just need to sell it differently. Just my 2 cents.

    Software development is not just about writing software, it is about solving problems creatively with software. Coding is one of many skills you need to be a software developer.

      AI will not replace all, but many. I would say in 10 years, 90% of Jobs in this area, will be gone. Just watch what happens in India. I agree that you will still need coders who can put thing together, but as AI raises over 300, there will not even this needed anymore. The human brain just can't properly recognize exponential grow, that's all it is. And now put conscious on it. Experts say, that at this point, we have 72 hours until AI reach 1000 and see us as a threat for earth. Musk, Hawkings and others may be wrong, at least i hope they are, but sadly, this is not a technical anymore, it became more and more philosophical.

    I'm a translator (German to English). I've been told that my profession was going to be eradicated by automation/AI ever since these buzzwords were created. Turns out that (as a contractor) my income has only increased over the years, and the work has only gotten increasingly more complex.
    Even though I do not have a technical background, I can say with confidence that AI/automation is highly overrated. I think programming will always be relevant, it's just that the nature of the profession will change over time. How that will look like, I'm not sure. But I believe it will involve still having intricate knowledge in programming, but it will more look like project management.

      @dallaslooksmaxxer3505 6 หลายเดือนก่อน +73

      The spelling is on point. However, it’s a direct translation. For any type of informal text where nuance/sentence structure/word choice (in terms of synonyms) doesn’t matter, this is a perfectly acceptable translation.
      One substantial mistake I was able to identify perusing the text is that chat GTP spat out the word “Vorbildung”, which shouldn’t translate to the word “background” I used. vorbildung refers to one’s formal education, whereas background in English can refer to both formal and informal training/education.
      Another mistake which I identified is that Chat GTP adopted the exact same sentence structure used in the English language. That’s actually a huge one as it does not sound like the speech of a native German speaker.
      Chat GTP also adopted the same short and scrunched together sentence structuring that is common in the English language. This sounds very odd in the German language.
      Again, it’s a good translation “1-1 direct translation” (and serves its purpose of conveying meaning), but it’s not an “actual translation” that takes the meaning and repackages it into a native-sounding product. This is also the reason why most translators only have a one-way language pair (for example, i ONLY translate from German into English, not vice-versa).
      Any type of “creative” text that relies heavy on onomatopoeia, literary devices, figures of speech, context and nuance such as marketing, literature, business and legal texts do not fare well with machine translation.
      Many agencies I work with have policies in place that state that if they suspect the use of machine translation, they will no longer award me assignments. And the most telltale sign that machine translation can create sub-par translations (rather than good ones) is that Google themselves publicly state that Google translate should only be used for reference purposes, and that it should at least be reviewed by a human before being published. This policy is even more important in the legal industry. Legal texts such as judgments, affidavits, contracts have real life consequences. If the lawyers/judges/jury members misinterpret information because machine translation spat out incorrect context/nuance, this can literally alter court cases (for better or worse).
      Now I will add that the one area where machine translation aids humans the most is technical translations (anything to do with engineering, technology, computers etc.) given the black/white nature of the field, and hence the lack of nuance. In fact, I heard that patent translators are affected the most since machine translation is basically doing the job for them.

    The video is a humorous and exaggerated take on the drawbacks of coding as a career. The speaker uses irony, sarcasm, and hyperbole to mock the coding delusion and the slave programming skills. He also contrasts coding with other more appealing and profitable opportunities, such as the media layer and the entrepreneur programming skills. The video is also a clever way to advertise the sponsors, Skillshare and Keychron, by integrating them into the narrative and the theme of the video. The video is entertaining and informative, but it should not be taken too seriously or literally.

    Core points discussed in the video:
    1. Coding will give nothing but a 9-5 job which is an employee mindset.
    2. There will be less coding in the future, instead focus on fields like AI, web3, ..
    3. frameworks will never make you a real developer, DSA will.
    4. "Software engineer" is not a "high-status" job like everybody think.
    5. Focus on skills that will make you rich not slave skills.
    My opinion: I only disagree with the "Techlead" in the point that the knowledge given by the university is outdated, because that knowledge (creating database from scratch, having idea abt how compilers work or creating a website) all of this knowledge is the only way to learn and master CS. Also 100k software engineering job is not high paying job, I disagree on that point also ://

      Agreed but makes you wonder if it wasn’t better for some to just become a certified accountant, a trucker, plumber, etc… many people in the trades (provided they arrive on time and sober) can make way WAY more than $100K after a few of years of working while getting certifications on the side, plus they can start working almost as soon as they finish high school without carrying hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt… so these people start already with a several years of work debt less headstart (+$300K?) compared to someone that spent 5+ years studying and a large loan to pay just starting their career.
      There’s of course the love for the craft involved, I’m an electronics engineer (out of peer pressure), but never exercised and ended up programming video games (without any CS degrees or formal study on that front), the potential lower pay I deal with by being as minimalist as comfortably possible, since I love doing what I do so much.

    I can't possibly disagree with this video more. I started coding/software engineer in 1985. Even back then, they were saying coders wouldn't be needed in 10 years (They also said we wouldn't need paper anymore. 🤣). It is fantasy. There are way more skills to software engineering than coding, and although there is a possibility AI will eventually be able to provide these skills in some fashion, it still quite a ways off. And someone has to be able to tell if the AI is wrong or right, because we all know that ChatGPT et al are wrong A LOT! Also, who is going to tell the AI what to do? It needs to be someone who knows how to give instructions and define the detailed goal in technical terms. Some of your points have merit, but overall, you are way off on your timing, IMO.

    • @aliammar2447
      @aliammar2447 6 หลายเดือนก่อน +3

      Well Mr. 1985, you're right on a lot of points, though I've come to understand that you are neglecting a strong point. Humans will continuously evolve, technology is ever evolving and humans use this as a method to evolve themselves. That being said, there will always be humans in the equation taking control to some degree, you're right on that. Though, what you're not understanding is that the concern lies with the demand of Software Engineering. SWE will become undoubtedly obsolete to the degree that it at the minimum drastically reduces the majority of the SWE job market; it's simple and logical, it can't be denied. The logistical growth of AI can't be understood, illustrated by the CEO & AI Engineers being surprised or unsure of the breakthroughs that have happened or any that may continue to happen.
      This being said, there are two possibilities for the very near future (2-7 Years):
      Possibility 1 - SWE will continue on the path of drastically plummeting on job demand in spite of the market perhaps being the most oversaturated for a high skill job.
      Possibility 2 - Schools will teach SWE as a fundamental in the future just as we learn 2*2 because there will be some job no-one is aware of currently.
      So, will AI "Take over SWE?" Well metaphorically and in a great sense, yes; through eliminating an insane demand that employers deem unnecessary.
      It simply can't be denied, just hope that SWE becomes a fundamental for a more complex job, though we'll see I guess.

      Although the central thesis of the significance of the (both liberating and dysfunctional) economic opportunity created by broadening participation in media is correct, one of the modulating/countervailing elephant-in-the-living room issues is that the FAANG have monopolized the Internet which is stagnating opportunities for startups software development. The video is overly pessimistic because of the lack of decentralization which he alluded to in the prior video (The Age of Making Money is Over). Correct that people are not going to download new apps (pita!), but they will visit new websites. So apps just need to become websites (the standalone app is nonsensical). And we need to decentralize everything to open up all the opportunities again for programmers and innovation. No disrespect intended because Patrick Shyu is knowledgeable, observant and intelligent, yet he may not be a visionary (after all he took a job at Google and I coded and marketed million user software more than once by myself or in small startups). Afaics, he is analyzing without any vision for how to innovate out of the stagnation of the current monopolization paradigm which incidentally is helping the self-immolation of Western civilization as the scapegoat for the end of the post-WWII (especially post-1970s) globalization, debt bubble.

      @@yuki2413 I agree 1985 is not 2024. But neither is the technology even remotely close. There are new APIs, libraries, programming paradigms, interaction paradigms, UI/UX designs, operating systems, hardware interfaces, hardware designs, input interfaces, and countless other new developments constantly shaping technology. AI will not "create" these ideas, nor will it be able to implement them in its current state. AI, IMO, will always be AT LEAST one step behind human innovation, and it will depend on humans to develop the blueprints for AI to operate from. It might even get to the point that by the time AI catches up to the newest technology, the tech will have moved on to the next iteration. Eventually, the cost to teach the AI may not justify its usefulness in some fields. It is all speculation for now, and I am a big proponent of AI. It can improve productivity efficiencies in many industries and really help with automation in brand new areas. I just don't think it is going to replace all of our jobs in the foreseeable future. Right now, AI has helped search and information gathering technology take an evolutionary step. I look forward to what comes next.

If entrepreneurship is what you're trying to get into, it just means there's a lot more you will have to do to achieve that status. Which he gives the answer to in the video. Right now it's about social media marketing and data. Your degree isn't worthless. How you use it is what matters.

    All those "digital nomad influencers", as you put it, rely on technological tools to reach their audiences. Software engineers are required to build and maintain those tools. There is definitely a lot need for programmers and there will keep being a need for them for the foreseeable future. The trick is that, like many other jobs before, this one is transitioning into a more "mass production" pace, where there will be a foundation of lower-skilled, "menial" workers, doing simpler maintenance work on web apps, and a smaller pool of high-skilled engineers working on more complex products.

Layer 1 makes my number row the F keys, layer 1 has my arrow keys, work macros, numpad, and on and on. Layer 0 has the normal alphabet, except I made my pinky delete and moved the colon key.

    This video just goes to show why some people shouldn't be making content in the tech space. Spreading this kind of false information can alter the way aspiring programmers think. You're essentially making people question if all the effort they are putting into this field is pointless. No amount of credibility gives you the right to strip people of their title as a developer, even if it is React development, people still went through an immense amount of work and effort to get where they are. You point out that people shouldn't learn how to code because it isn't what it used to be. Keep in mind that most people looking to transition into the tech industry aren't looking to become the next Mark Zuckerberg. They are looking to live a better and more fulfilling lifestyle, and by saying "to become a programmer -- is like becoming a janitor." You're taking away peoples aspirations and the hours/years of work they put into learning a skill like coding. My only wish is that people see this video as an example as to why just because channels have a massive following, doesn't mean that they are people you should look up to. You are strictly looking to make money off of this video -- and by doing so you are altering peoples minds with such a sensitive subject as this. If this sounds harsh -- that's the point.

    Basic coding is going to disappear, but maintaining million-line projects that can only be described in 10000 page documents, where concepts are ambiguous, and you need 1 million samples to test the system properly, well those jobs will stay here a little longer. Also leadership skills are still going to apply, and the instinctive ability to break down large systems into smaller parts, negotiate between teams, making sure customer expectations are met, that there are no misunderstandings, that's going to be here for the time being. And it has higher social status, the Team Lead. Coding is deceptive, because if it was easy to explain a problem, we wouldn't need coders. The issue is that certain problems are inherently complex and can't be explained in a few basic sentences. Natural language often doesn't help you when a formal description is needed. I think leadership and communication are going to be increasingly more important. Entrepreneurship could become more important. If AI can take over the job of 400 employees, there's still going to be that single person who's running them, the entrepreneur, and maybe every person in the world will become an entrepreneur, when we're no longer employable by large corporations. And when a single AI can do the job of a million workers, there are no more companies, only individuals.

AI right now offers just a little assistantance explaining things or recommending solutions that arent exactly right or need work. Also the one using it should still understand what the code does because if they dont understand they cant know if the answer is correct or not. This wont change anytime soon and if it does it will replace everyone not just junior devs.

    2. It doesn't have home + end keys. Again you can choose between them, but again it's a pain. And you can't really remap any key to anything, as actually they key cap have different format.
