      kek I asked an algorithm question not too long ago and got piled with down votes because I didn't format basic multiplication shit using latex. And got a few passive aggressive comments. I improved my post and then they came back and said it was still shit for x y and z reasons and replaced the link i had in the post because I linked to a website that has cookies. I didn't see anything in the rules about cookies and I'm pretty sure the new link also had cookies too. So it was clearly just them being c**ts at that point.
      So yeah, you bet I'm paying 20 dollars to my ai overlord instead now.

    Aren't the people answering questions on stackoverflow volunteers? The main reason the site is inferior to AI is because of the misbehavior of the people 'answering' questions. It's not really the site devs fault and isn't directly replacing developers, just deleting the entire business.

    ChatGPT will create a fully formed function with my specifications that I can use to test. It doesn't always get it right or exactly what I need, but it's a good jumping off point.

    Compared to stackoverflow, where sometimes there isn't a usable function, or if they do have one, it uses way too many dependencies to be tested.

    The only thing that matters is that the median household income in 1970 was 235oz of gold. A senior SWE is very likely earning less than a 1970 truck driver in real terms.

        really it's this, programming is pretty much done unless you're developing actual new tech or some complicated low level efficiency stuff. But for 95% of the volume of programming, the problem is known, the patterns are known, and it's better having an AI assemble it and not code up a shitty insecure app because of inexperience/stupidity.

      The purpose of stackoverflow is (was?) to create a repository of well-crafted questions and answers. The quality of the results depended on both the questioner and the answerer. This is real work and not immediately rewarding. Therefore the scoring system. It worked quite well for a good while.
      In 10 years humans will not be capable of building up such a system anymore.

      They're not real artists, though. An artist has ideas in their head, that they try to put down on paper exactly as they like, according to their skill. Typing in words and getting an image back depending on a dozen models fighting eachother just isn't the same, it's closer to using a search engine.

    The problem with stackoverflow is that if you need help with something new and unique you don't get answer until someone eventually answers it. But what's worse is what happens if nobody really answers it or there's no real solution? Like a question about how do I fill and addcreate multiple excel sheets in powershell? Not just one sheet but multiple? It turns out it's not really possible or requires too much work to provide any value. It also can't be done in python, however you will see plenty of answers suggesting different ways to get the names or a dictionary list of all the sheet names within a workbook...
