Definition of Programming
So, before I can explain the FUTURE, hint: I do not, we have to understand what the purpose of programming languages are. My idea of a programming language’s purpose is to more easily interface with modern computational devices.
How I View The Structure
This is the structure I have defined for the possible future of programming languages:
- 🙈 Pre-bloom – The technology scene now.
- 🙉 Bloom – The short-term scene.
- 🙊 Boom – The long-term, or post-bloom scene.
This is where we are now. The astounding pace of technology is well, astounding. We are hugely surprised at the regular occurrence of AI in our lives. The result of artificial intelligence’s labor has pleased us. All’s well that ends well.
Our technology has improved so vastly that we are solving humanity’s worst problems. Little did we know, we CREATED our worst. However, starvation, inequality, and human suffering have been brought to a halt. The solutions that AI brings to the table seem to be supernatural, and yet they have worked their magic.
Our devices have learned the art of coding. They are now creating programs we only ever dreamed of. Apparently, we did not expect this. They replace all programmers in due time. The only thing humanity is left wondering is if they use spaces or tabs. ☺️
When I experience an AI optimist, I question myself to the point of no return. Am I generally a negative person? Is stupidity infesting my brain as much as my fear of AI? Have I conformed to fantasy rather than fact? I repeatedly receive an answer with the length of two letters and yet the vigor and persistence that can only be prescribed of a bull. NO! Unless we calculate the number of escape pods necessary for humans, AI is a threat.
You know it or not?
Unless you have not noticed — which is fairly impossible, I am not adept enough at explaining the variance of AI and the universe. Here are some people you should definitely check out who do:

What it all boils down to
Essentially, there is no future for programming. There is only the short-term. Programming languages will become awesomely powerful, or rather, the computers will. The only point in which we will need human editors of programs is when the apocalypse is near. If you have a different opinion I’d love to hear it, please contact me, with the socials below:
