    Yhtiössä laskettiin, että pilvestä riippuvaisena sillä ei olisi varaa toimia ensinkään.

    Coding Sucks Anyway — Matt Welsh on the End of Programming
    https://thenewstack.io/coding-sucks-anyway-matt-welsh-on-the-end-of-programming/

    A former professor of computer science and Google engineering lead thinks generative AI will lead to the end of programming within 3 years.

    This month Matt Welsh, a former professor of computer science at Harvard, spoke at a virtual meetup of the Chicago Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), explaining his thesis that ChatGPI and GitHub Copilot represent the beginning of the end of programming.

    Welsh thinks programming is on the cusp of changing from a job that humans do, to one that robots will do, thanks to technologies like ChatGPT and Copilot. In his view, programmers will need to evolve into “teachers” of AI programs — or perhaps product managers or code reviewers, the two human roles he thinks are relatively safe from the robots. But don’t expect to continue your career as an actual programmer, he says, because machines are taking over that role.

    Welsh has founded a startup to prove his theory. Fixie.ai, which he is the CEO of, is a self-described “automation platform for large language models.” It aims to help businesses program custom software using, you guessed it, ChatGPT and similar machine learning programs.

    ‘Computer Science is Doomed’
    Welsh came off the top rope at the start of his presentation, claiming that “computer science is doomed.”

    “Programs that people are developing today are just as complex, just as hard to maintain, just as difficult to understand and just as full of bugs as they have ever been,” he claimed.

    It was GitHub Copilot that made Welsh fundamentally reassess the meaning of computer science. “Copilot radically changes the way that we write code,” he said, “and has, at least in my personal experience, been just a remarkable and profound way of accelerating my development.”

    Basically, he only sees a couple of roles for humans once programmers are phased out: product manager and code reviewer.

    It’s time for open-source users to open their wallets
    History has shown that open-source users prefer their software free of charge but that’s a problem for a lot of companies trying to keep the lights on.
