Please all, answer the following question, this subject is fun:

Maybe the future of the programming is the human-language-level programming.

What are the opinions of the programmers about the future of the programming? :wink:

Seeing as my industry (embedded software) is moving as swiftly as a sloth on Valium, I don't think we will be seeing major shifts in programming technique or languages within my lifetime. We have been using C forever and a day, and I don't see any language take it over, except maybe C++. This might not sit well with "safe" language advocates, but no other language has the same market penetration. Yes, it is circular (other languages are unpopular, so we don't use them, so they never get popular), but such is the nature of the beast.

As for entirely different systems (e.g. S0lar talked about a game-ifyed programming system a while back), my bosses would probably recoil in horror. I also see that as far too impractical. Right now, the answer to "how do I do X?" is "here's a snippet". With that you'd have to send a list of instructions.

Edit: As a PM has made me aware, Solar advocated no such thing. In fact, it was Brendan: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=33181&p=285831&hilit=minecraft#p285831

And yes, I am aware of the irony.
