I've been reading lots about future of jobs wrt AI, particularly on f/e dev.
Conclusion: the f/e engineer is dead, long live the f/e engineer.
I had to study as I need to plan ahead. One needs a five-year plan (acknowledging all jokes about accuracies of 5-year plans).
If you, like me, carry the primary responsibility for planning resource levels, skills etc for your tech company/ division, then you need to bone up on these trends too.
More than 50% of 2023 has passed and enough verbage has been spouted since the LLM/AI job apocalypse predictions hit us. After absorbing I've conclude that role will continue to evolve and ongoing upskilling is necessary.
But that's just a continuation of a decades-long trend. It's not as if there are any classic noughties "web developers" anymore.
We need to: make time for our staff to upskill, and ensure they do.
In other words: plus ca change...
