I am impressed. I'm just trying to find a paradigm I can use to approach this technology. It's easier to adopt if I'm coming from somewhere familiar.

I just spent the last two hours playing with ChatGPT and I'm even more impressed. I am building a personal-use application for wine making. In that 2 hours I got further along than I had in two days of conventional programing. It didn't take long to learn that the secret is telling it what you want rather than how to do it.
The most important thing is to be able to describe your requirements in unambiguous terms. That's something we've been trying to get our users to do as long as programming has been around. The role of dev may evolve to that of translator but will take on much more importance because bad translation may affect hundreds of thousands of lines generated code.
I'm not a convert. At least not yet. But for small projects I see the potential and will continue to study the catechism.
