How is programming likely to be different a decade from now?


I can provide a few reasons how programming will change over the next 10 years.

First - Programming will be more abstract

Trends like serverless technologies, containers, and low code platforms suggest that many developers may work at higher levels of abstraction in the future, removed from lower-level details of coding.

AI will become part of every developer's toolkit—but won't replace them

I think we'll see more examples where development tools will try to predict developers' intent, and make it quicker for them to express that intent, which in the end, becomes another form of abstraction

I also believe a universal programming language will arise

It will support all developers regardless of their spoken language

Another change will be that every developer will need to work with data

Everything from statistical data analysis, to non-linear and linear data analysis, to machine learning and even artificial intelligence

Lastly, and most important, programming will be a central part of schools
