Agreed. Some of it is need. In the old days, we had to know transistor theory (I even worked on vacuum tube machines) and such to fix hardware. We had to write assembler programs to help isolate the hardware problems. Now we don't need all that, we can just swap out the processor or motherboard and such. Maybe even the whole computer (or phone). We don't need assembler language (or C) skills, we can just download the latest framework. I can use bootstrap to create a gee whiz web site. No need for other stuff. QA is for the students.

After watching some of this years Build, I come away with the impression that the big questions are:
What Azure or AWS or whatever tools and instances should I use?
Which shiny new framework(s) should I use?
Wow, .Net will take me to the promised land!
Microsoft (and others) will help me escape from the evils of Javascript with more frameworks and abstraction and "tools".

Remember when we said that using scripting languages wasn't really programming? Real programmers used assembler? Now real programmers use Blazor or Vue or maybe even Oqtane.....

I am not sure all this is bad, the same things happen in almost all walks of life. Ask Siri. Wink | ;)

If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
