I’m worried about the present state of programming. Programmers now are supposed to mostly just use libraries. Programmers aren’t allowed to do their own thing from scratch anymore. They’re supposed to have reusable code that somebody else has written. There’s a bunch of things on the menu and you choose from these when you put them together. Where’s the fun in that? Where’s the beauty of that?
