Creative people who learn and adapt to the new tools will find them powerful and useful

If you’re like me, you’re getting into this web development because you like building things.

You’re basically the main builder of a house. People can and did build basic “houses” themselves throughout history, but they were limited. That’s us now. We hand code everything. Our sites are basically “hand crafted.”

But AI that can code is like having a company of builders working for you. You’re not going to build sun brick huts or teepees with a crew of 5-8 guys and advanced tools. You’re going to use your time to design a house much more luxurious than what one person could build. You’d build a modem home with air conditioning and maybe several floors.

This is how you’re going to start to see yourself. You will be the highest level manager of what we consider today to be major application projects.

People have been saying a lot of distributed software is going to go out the window. Why buy a license to Microsoft Office if you can just ask the AI to make you a word processor without all the other crap you don’t want.

You’ll be creating custom digital experiences in the future with the help of AI, not necessarily coding by hand. Start imagining what you could accomplish with a team of people working for you.

I'm a full-stack developer with Microsoft's MVC (model view controller) code pattern which, I think, is one of the most popular code pattern out there. Basically, I can ask ChatGPT to make data models with foreign keys everywhere, and it will:

--Construct the Interface.

--Models, functions, and model inheritances.

--The controllers.

--The views in a not so good manner.

--Several really good unit tests for the Models.

So at the ability of ChatGPT, it probably entirely replaces all the new programmers. Like before if I had 4 programmers doing that stuff, just 1 programmer is now needed.

ChatGPT is very very good indeed. And its ability to parse out natural English into a well-made function with unit tests is really good. It's almost spooky at how good it is at writing even complex function. For instance, I used to use the C# cookbook, pull out a function that sort of came close to what I needed, and spent time figuring out getting it to work. Not anymore; ChatGPT is incredibly good at figuring out what you're saying.

So instead of paying $80,000/year for a new full-stack developer, just pay $20/month for a subscription for a seasoned developer.

The near future - you'll be using these AI tools to increase your output and productivity. Many, like me, have been doing this for the last year already.

The longer term future may be a little more uncertain. For example - what happens when we have an AGI that doesn't need the direction of a human developer? It just needs input from some product person and then it goes and builds an app.

Hi, Live-Scholar-5245. Thanks for contributing. However, your submission was removed from /r/Futurology.

> > Hello friends! As we all know, AI is rapidly increasing, and I am scared of it. I want to be a Front end developer and Later On, I want to be a full stack developer I heard that many jobs and careers will be affected in the future, like web development and software development, as we already know that ChatGPT and other software can write code easily. Now I need a genuine suggestion about what would be the best option for the future. Many people are saying that machine learning and AI will be the best, but I'm not interested in machine learning and AI. > 1) What will be the future of Front End/ full-stack developers? > 2) Will it be affected by AI? > 3) Which computer field do you suggest for me?

> Rule 10 - We welcome text posts, but could you please ensure they meet our requirements for creating in-depth discussion. If yours is removed for failing to do so, consider reposting again, but with additional detail.

Avoid generalized invitations to discuss frequently discussed topics (Will AI take over the world? Is Chat-GPT good or bad, etc, etc). Instead, aim for discussion with specific topics (with supporting links if possible), and give detail to the ideas about their future implications that you would like to see discussed. If possible articulate multiple aspects of these future implications to encourage high quality discussion.

Submissions with [in-depth] in the title have stricter post length and quality guidelines.

Just remember that all AI has the weakness of their servers being burned down 🔥
