General The Future Of Programming

Recommended Posts

Programmers rule the world. We're dangerous. We kill people. The world depends on us in ways it doesn't yet understand, and in ways we don't yet understand. These are a few of the talking points by Robert Martin (aka Uncle Bob) in the last few minutes of his talk titled "The Future of Programming". If you are interested in programming, or even if you aren't I highly recommend watching this.

He makes a good point about how at some point in time there will be a catastrophe that kills a lot of people due to software. He also gave me the feeling that I need to start learning how to program because one day programming may actually be something that is a must know.

He makes a scary point about the field of programming eventually being regulated. If there was an entity that forced us to use specific languages, platforms, processors, processes, then a lot of us may have never gotten into this field. The freedom of programming is important. If someone told @Damian666 that he had no choice but to use a language with brackets then he'd be gone for good.

it is actually a bit scary when you think what has software in it, medical machines etc, software has bugs, that's just how it is :P

Kind of a scary reality. Imagine in the FAR FAR future, when robots can basically replace humans in the work-field, be the programmer for those robots LOL.
