Coding Is Over

Look out everyone, the new girl knows what she’s talking about… time to pack it up. When you’ve been at this for more than a few months, how about you come back and try writing this again? For starters, if you’re three months in and placed, it means you’re entry-level and probably doing the uninteresting stuff. You’re still proving yourself, and the “coding” you’re doing is the stuff most likely to be replaced with boilerplate and toolkits. The longer you do this, the more you’ll realize that rarely do things just “work”. Yes automation, established APIs, toolkits, etc. will continue to make some routine things more streamlined, but real-world applications pretty much ~never~ are satisfied completely by out-of-the-box solutions. Learning to be a coder, developer, whatever is a process… one that takes more than three months of experience as a Frontend Apprentice at AnyPerk to declare the entire discipline “over”.
