All my senior engineers have been completely clearing our coding backlog after working with GPT-4.

All my senior engineers have been completely clearing our coding backlog after working with GPT-4. My junior engineers literally have almost nothing to do anymore, I can't even make up busywork or new tasks. I've already frozen hiring for the foreseeable future, but is there any good reason I shouldn't start letting go of the dead weight?

    Give one example of where a senior engineer finished a task using GPT-4.

    Not that I don't believe you I'd just like to know where you're applying this.

      not OP but my company recently started a limited program with a vended gpt package and it's working quite well.

      it doesn't have any prompt limits like chat bots, it doesn't try to communicate beyond writing code (it's just an IDE plugin). it's not perfect but it shows a lot of promise to handle boilerplate, business logic, and algorithm stuff (still rocky on interfaces).

      i could see it disrupting our 1 senior / 2 junior paradigm by EOY.

        Guys, GPT is awesome as a tool to empower a programmer.

        >GPT will take jobs
        >no it won't, give me an example of a senior dev using it to finish a project
        Let's be honest about the bot's limitations here. Since the "database" that GPT uses is scraped from the internet off sites like imgur, the code that GPT writes often fails to even compile. Furthermore, I've seen the bot do absolutely moronic shit with code. Remember, at its core the bot is nothing more than a bunch of scraped forum answers. The code it writes gets less viable the longer the program being written. That is, GPT can write small snippets of code at best. You still need a big brain $100k/year human to put the snippets of code together to make sense of what the bot is writing.

          Yes but you now need one big brain $100k/year human to put snippets of code together instead of three or more who will get laid off. Hope you won't be one of those, buddy.

          i mean, if you're talking about chatGPT then yeah, limited risk. the plugin i'm using is a paid product tuned on a totally different dataset (including our own codebase so it can generate working service endpoints). it's actually really good.

          junior positions could be in a lot of trouble this year as code-specific GPT tools become popular.

            juniors themselves can use GPT so the boomer hierarchy of "I'm older so my code must be better" isn't working anymore

            Using the AI to write good code is a skill unto itself. All I have to do is use GPT better than you.

              Uh no, more competition means lower wages.

              it was never about "older" or "better". it's always been about trust.

              Bullshit, name the vendor/tool

              enterprise contract for bito (with in-house configuration) at a fintech you've all heard of. the secret sauce really is training on your own docs and code.

                can't do it. it's a big company but only a few of us have access to test the plugin.

      Senior programmers are using gpt so that the minor tasks are taken care of. The hard stuff they still perform but the tedious easy stuff is no longer tedious. Just get gpt and do minor adjustments instead of some dumb new college graduate.

      Well just like with artists, only the LTA ones are getting the short end of the stick, precisely as it should be, didnt waste all that sweat and tears studying after all

    Sounds like yout company was full of morons to begin with. The correct move is to fire everybody and get 1 guy with a brain.
