|I think if we look back, we realize that it has always become simpler to program as the years pass by. Today we accomplish much more with a lot less effort than before.
Under the hood and inside the APIs the complexity is hidden, but the programming task itself has become simpler, unless for some very specific tasks like programming against hardware.
I don't see why this movement could have a tendency to invert. That's why I believe programming will always become simpler, even if the amount of simplicity again diminishes.
