The Future of Programming

Description

What will programming look like in the next few years. Or the next few hundred? Will we still argue over tabs vs spaces? Probably. Will we still be using curly braces or even text? Maybe. Will we all be batteries for our AI overlords? Probably not in the next five years anyways.

    OMG, your whining about unequal pay for women in a talk about programming? At least your 95% amount was closer to the truth than the 70%ish that most politicians say.

    I thought woman worked as computers because all the young men were serving in the military at the time.

    And where is the evidence that the 10% difference between salaries of male and female  programmers is due to bias or discrimination?  Maybe the men are willing to work longer hours or are committed to work in the field for many more years than women?

    Wow. This isn't really the place to do this, I think. But there are many, many, objective measurements and studies documenting the wage gap between women and men in lots of fields. It is structural. Also, most scientists agree on global warming, there really isn't a controversy. Also, text books are probably a bad place for religious instruction. Also, gender reassignment means that one should use the bathroom that matches their new gender. Also, supply side economics have failed at every turn over the last 40 years. Also, chemtrails aren't real. Also, if you have ever been to Dallas, it's easy to see how Oswald could have made that shot. Also, you don't lose anything when someone else gains. Also, racism is still very real in America. Also, they mean that "black lives should matter more than they do now" and no one meant to imply that your life somehow doesn't matter. Also, no one wants your guns, we want to be safe in public. Also, the government didn't invent HIV. Also, the media does have a liberal bias but it doesn't work in the way that you think and FOX news is a cancer on the body politic. Also, vince foster actually killed himself. Also, picking apart just one of these doesn't make the others less valid. Also, things are probably better than you think and your selection bias reinforces your notions that today is worse that some golden time.

    IS crazy to think that women in Technology get paid less. Programming is a skill based Job - Do you know XAML - great 100k - Don't care if you are a monkey or a dinosaur, 13 or 70 - Skills and results is what you get paid for. All minor differences in salary come from your own negotiation skills.

    I am doing some research on visualising my code with HoloLens. Ironically, I am using pen and paper to do this.
