anyone else who started coding since 2022 feel totally reliant on AI?

anyone else who started coding since 2022 feel totally reliant on AI? as a tool it seems indispensible and like a massive crutch that I would be useless without. I read sometimes about programmers doing research with google and stack overflow, or students spending 3 hours bashing their head against a wall to solve a problem, and I just am way too lazy to do that when the answers I seek are a prompt away.

    This is just copy-paste stack overflow programmer 2.0. It’s not that different, outside of maybe being easier. Both groups would be functionally unproductive without an internet connection, and neither are reliably capable of tackling novel programming tasks where online documentation isn’t readily available.

      it's a little different since I can ask gpt questions until I understand exactly why what it's suggesting works, also I can quickly ask questions like "does it use X because of Y reason?" and it will give me reasonably good answers

    Yeah I'm in the same boat too, I'm working for a company and honestly can't even read the code. If I get an error I just copy it to an AI and it gives me an explanation. Sometimes when the LLM doesn't get it I search for similar code in google and then paste examples into it's context so that it'll find the right direction. I'm good at writing pseudocode as I couldn't explain it to the AI otherwise. I'm feeling ashamed that I can't even write a simple calculator without AI and I'm not proplery able to read the code. I always thought I can learn it in my company but every time I try to write it myself I get scolded for being slow. I should start learning coding in my freetime as I'm also having a hard time talking to real coders.

      I think you're making shit up, but if you are a real person. Do start taking some free time to learn to code.

      This may sound harsh but I hope bad things happen to you, you deserve it for not only stealing/committing fraud but also for taking away a job that could have been filled by a talented autist.

        IF the autist lost out against a literal codelet then there was zero chance for that autist in the first place

    I do that too. At least I try to understand what the code is doing so bit by bit I can do/correct some things by myself. Anyway, only the end result matters so I'm not feeling bad.

    I remember I started using ChatGPT at work in like, January of 2023?
    And now I can't even write a for loop in JavaScript without it...

    any homosexual who needs Ayyy Aiii to write software deserves the fricking wall
    get yourself a plain text editor, GCC, and a terminal
    do not even glance at an IDE, write every math function you can think of, then start writing natural language functions, then write markup converter functions, move onto a basic user interface like SDL, literally just a window and learn how to make a simple PROGRAM
    never use the term "APP" again
    do this all in C if you're a huge pussy

      And what? You're like morons who swear only by doing calculations by hand instead of using a calculator. Nobody cares how you made your program. Hell, most companies don't even care if your code is well-written as they hire pajeets en masse. Stop kidding yourself.

    this is only true if you are writing C or python. If you go too low level into assembly chatgpt spews unrelated garbage 80% of the time and only says something helpful 10% of the time, same goes for overly abstracted nonsense like c++, you are on your own.

    No I usually try to solve problems myself then google/stackoverflow and if I can't find anything relevant then I prompt an AI for help.

    Are you literally a robot posting this shit? If you know how to code you don't need AI at all. Stop being so fricking lazy or you don't deserve your job... since an AI bot can just take it from you.

    How do you deal with AI giving your bad/wrong answers?

    • 1 month ago

      The code won't work -> You send the error to the AI -> Rince and repeat until it works. Bonus, ask the AI to write unit tests

        Yup, your position is completely worthless.
        They could just replace you with the AI.

          Not really since they don't understand the code itself nor are they capable of prompting the AI correctly. Anyway, grow up kid. Everyone is replaceable, you're not special.

    You literally only need the manual.
    If you are doing something not covered by the manual, you are either moronic or smart enough to go check the source code.
    Skill issue if you resort to stack overflow or AI.
