Technology never ceases to evolve, it's been a few years since robots and artificial intelligence started to replace humans and their assistance, making life easier for some, but also taking jobs from others. But can AI take the job of the ones who programmed it? As funny as this question might seem, programmers are worried about how much they can learn and to what extent. AI already started coding, imposing changes in the software development industry. Fortunately, the only thing software developers need to do specifically is to adjust is their mindset.

Did AI permanently take the position...

The short answer is no.

It will take time for AI to be able to create a true, effective code that covers more than a few lines. Reducing human error, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in software development tools.

A good case in point is software testing: AI could track the work of the developer and build a test that is more stable or suitable for that particular piece of work.

Inspection of the real-time code guarantees that the data is checked as it is developed, so that additional bugs or non-compliance errors are detected early, rather than found as a concern at a later date.

These kinds of developments tend to give developers the fastest feedback they need to improve, and with the need to bring more people to create or manage software, it would be necessary. Though 'People' mentoring is going to be the best (for now), AI is an option that has a lot of potentials.

You still need to be relevant

Anybody could build a career as a software developer in this new digital world, but continuous learning is what makes a great programmer. Always explore when a task is given, share knowledge, read trend articles, online courses with practice codes, curiosity about the subject always make people learn. AI is a fast learner, you don't necessarily need to keep a match to it, but it is important as you have to always bring fresh ideas, frameworks, and even tools to explore new functions. And the big personal plus with staying relevant is the options. Evolving on the career or changing the specialty, you can all figure it out.

Developers also help with the remote experience of working

After the global COVID pandemic in 2020, there has been an immense effect on the digital world. 

Many businesses have started to rethink their strategies to permanently offer remote jobs. As a result, new tools and technologies including AI arose, transitioning to more agile, customizable, and purpose-built technology would keep the workers in increased virtual workspaces efficient and productive. In finding and designing solutions to help overcome the inherent challenges in remote work, software developers can lead this charge making it possible for them to stay in this field for a long time.


The obstacles that many developers face in order to gain entrance into the industry are cleared up by continual shifts in technology, society, and culture. As a result, we will see a community that is more innovative, diverse, imaginative, and efficient. We're not on the verge of a major technological revolution, it's already happening. For any company that uses or provides software, now is the time to start getting the right plans and building blocks in place. The possibilities are vast, but we still need to deal with the risks.
