I do not know how many of here from programming background and how many has seen/heard punch cards
I started my career at that time, shreded so many punch cards at work, later 8086 microprocessor Assembly programming, C language, JCLs (job control language), then Cobol, Database, C++, now python, big data, mobile apps…etc
Technology changed, transformed jobs, still IT job remains after 35 years. In fact, I see more IT jobs now (IT need not be programming alone) and everything is changed to software engineering.
AI, VR are another building block that transforms society.
This is exactly like driving Carriages to cars then to plane…etc. The carriage driver job may go off, car driver job may go off, Pilot job can go obsolete, but associated new jobs will be there.
