...sooner or later, programming will be simpler to the point to be just the last step of design.

Someday, metadata based systems will "talk" between themselves to integrate and extend as required.

In the decades between, developers will continue passing from the "how" to the "what", raising the level of abstraction of the solutions they create.
Wake up! The Singularity is coming.
