Learning to code in the modern era is a world away from how many current software developer acquired their skills. Programming used to be algorithmic and is becoming ever more heuristic in its nature, with machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) coming more to the fore.
Having been a developer for 18 years, Dale Lane has spent much of his time working on AI and ML projects. From involvement in large-scale research ML projects led by expert PhD’s to fun educational projects with a school class of 8-year olds, he has seen first hand how the developer experience has changed massively. In this presentation, he takes a retrospective look at how we have coded in the past, speculate on what might come next, and consider what that could mean for the next generation of software developers.
