Summary of Article
The article titled “Will Programming Be Automated?” goes over how automation will affect a programmer’s job. Many programmers have been worrying about this the last few years. Some people say that programmers will be obsolete in the near future and some say they will not. However, this article talks about how incorporating automation into the programmer’s work will actually make them more efficient. This doesn’t mean they will lose their job, it just means they will save time in all the projects they have going on. Additionally, “the number of programming jobs may decline, but aspiring programmers can look forward to around 9,700 new positions each year” (Team, 2021).
The article talks about how the programmers evolve into their new defined roles. Having automation means there will be “faster program writing, reduced risk of error and better project scopin” (Team, 2021). With these perks there is no reason why companies would not want to go with automation. If automation can save time producing code templates, finding and fixing bugs why wouldn’t companies want to go with automating their processes should be the question.
