More techies tell newbies "do not 'learn to code'"; maybe, learn to sell?
There are quite a few videos out there about (don’t) “learn to code”.
This monologue from Silicon Valley is pretty typical. He warns that artificial intelligence may eliminate the jobs.
I can remember being called a “coder”. I was the grunt who did the work, and fixed the abends in the night cycle (at my own expense, undermining other people’s jobs). Remaining an individual contributor made your personal life freer, however, as to other "choices".
So I’m glad I’m “retired”, developing the content of websites trying to help people “connect the dots” among policy issues.
