A lotnof basic coding can be done via AI already. If you don't have a niche and or sre not a problem solving programmer. You will be out of a job, like a lot of people easily replacable skills.

I'd laugh at an AI attempting to work on the codebase I work on, haha 😄

Now you do but in 10 years, not so much. As it takes the entire code base, rewrites and reorganizes it.

I'll believe it when I see it because, at the moment, AI for code writing is useless because it can not grasp abstract concepts and makes endless mistakes in code.

Ofcourse, it is a learning algorithm. Its not unlike most first year coding students. Also combine with a human, it already can do well. We need to look at them as a tool, like a calculator or anything else. What could you get done, if the AI could do the shit work for you and toj just desing the next section?

Depends on how much of the AI generated code you will have to spend debugging due to obscure errors, especially once you start reaching millions of lines of code.

The AI may be able to handle simple tasks right now. In the future, it may be able to do more complex things, but it is unlikely to replace developers in the field for quite some time.

As a potential tool for refactoring old code, I could see it happen sooner, but it would still need to be done in small chunks to ensure it doesn't introduce bugs or change behaviour.
