Eschatology › The “Promise” of “Easier” Programminghttps://eschatologist.net/blog/?p=374
Looks at LLM driven development via comparison to LabView (visual programming) and 80/90's discussions of fourth generation languages (4GL).
All of the same people—people who appear to resent having to give money to professional software developers to practice their trade—think that this time it’ll be different, that they’ll finally be able to just describe what they want a computer to do for their enterprise and have a program created to do it. They continue to not realize that the actual complexity is in the processes themselves that they’re describing, and in breaking these down in sufficient detail to create computer systems to implement them.
