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.
