I am a front end developer student. I am doing bootcamp to change my careerpath. Then I see the effectiveness of AI and the concept of no-code. Wont it be very difficult for me to get a career?

No. No-code is used to built simple frontend applications, not large scale enterprise systems. ChatGPT will help you be a better frontend developer because you understand code, a non-developer would have a very hard time using ChatGPT to build a sophisticated app.


ChatGPT will help just as much as Google and StackOverflow will and one is better off using those.


I think it will just be an accelerator for coding, learning and growth. Domain knowledge, understanding of the business or the related systems is crucial. I think if you are really talking long term 10 years, 20 years, yeah AI is going to wipe out jobs and drastically change our world but there are a lot of ways it will help in the mean time, like asking it to suggest code to perform a particular function to jump start a project or identify and consolidate all the duplicate ssis jobs.


Definitely is an accelerator for coding. But so was google and stack overflow.

Yes, no bootcamp students are getting jobs right now, not even experienced software engineers are getting jobs. Have you thought about going for a career in accounting instead ? Good pay and excellent stability.


There's only around 1.5 million open software development related jobs in the US at the moment....

Don’t do a bootcamp. Absolute waste of time and will potentially make it even harder to find a job. It puts you in the same bucket of ‘bootcamp grads’ which you really don’t wanna be in right now. Be self taught. It shows real initiative and desire to learn.

Scrimba is an awesome resource.


I agree to an extent. A lot of the Boot Camp graduates I’ve worked with over the years are usually functionally literate in only a framework, and lack foundational knowledge. The camps tend to evangelize a specific framework and stack, and give people a misguided sense of competence in the field as a whole.

Not that any education is bad to have; just go in with the attitude that you’ll always be learning and growing, and you need to take development on as a collaborative process in general.

No one uses no code for enterprise apps. Some is also expensive.


That is about as crazy as saying "No one uses AS/400s anymore". Enterprise apps are made of lots of pieces, and I absolutely guarantee that for some parts of some enterprise apps no code is absolutely a part of it. Even if its just reporting portions, there are some and it will continue to grow.

Not at all.


If you think AI and no-code are going to replace the need for engineers, you’re misinformed. As an ML engineer, there are many things that AI does to make my job easier, but it’s a very long way from being able to replace me entirely.

Personally I think bootcamps are a waste of time and money. The majority of what you learn is available in the public domain since it’s open source software.


In the mid 1980s, both GNU Hurd and AI were going to transform teh_wirld RSN.


No clue what you’re talking about

as long as you stay flexible and keep up with the industry you’ll be fine

Front end development has a wider scope.

Who do you think is going to maintain the code that generates and improves upon the existing AI?

Not you for sure

I am also a full-stack bootcamp grad and have been in the field for 5 years in the financial sector as a developer and now product manager. Here is what I’ve learned:

For the AI angle, it’s best to become someone who knows how to use it. It’s not going away, so “keep your enemies close” (except it’s not an enemy). Learn how to use ChatGPT efficiently in your spare time. I couldn’t really guess when, but that will probably come in handy before you expect it.

For the no-code angle, I’m currently at a company where we’re using a low/no code platform (which is a branding description, and not a real description) to build a massive enterprise application suite in the financial sector. We are mostly using contractors for that, but those contracting companies are hiring (and charging well) for that skill.

If you wanted to go the route of becoming, for example, and Appian developer, that would be a pretty fruitful career path and you’d learn plenty about application architecture and connecting with external services. Becoming an expert in that platform could earn a great income. However, it’s a proprietary ecosystem and it would pull you away from open source programming. Open source has more opportunity for breadth of experience, which isn’t necessarily better or worse. Those proprietary platforms have limitations, but they also have strengths, are in demand, and that demand won’t go away soon.

In regards to open source vs low/no code development, it’s best just to make a decision in a certain trajectory, run with that decision, and expect your first job will be a little tougher than other jobs. Work hard, pay attn, learn new things regularly, yada yada yada. Trying to chase the next lucrative technology will really suck a lot of enjoyment out of the field.

I was diagnosed with major depression around 4 years ago. Told I’d have to be on antidepressants for 3-5 years. Sometimes I have severe depressive episodes. Recently it’s been impacting my work performance. I’ve also started taking more sick days as a coping mechanism since being at work seems to make it worse, especially granted I’m working with a d*ck of a manager. Always been a high performer (before this period, which really sucks). Really want to quit but don’t have a new job yet.Advice pls

Is this normal? I found out I am ineligible for a raise because I was hired 2 weeks after the cutoff. The company only does raises once a year, and if you're hired after a set date that year you cannot get a raise. I feel my situation/performance so far deserve recognition, but I am told I am ineligible for an increase until the next cycle, which would be 1 year from now, 1.5 years after starting. Is this normal for most companies in tech?

How much is too much to ask for when negotiating an internal raise?

I'm a senior software engineer with 10 years of experience. I've been with my current company for 5 years. I started at 100k and now I'm only at 116k, which means they haven't even kept me up with inflation.

I'm happy and don't *want* to leave to have to get my worth. I want to ask for 150k (I've been seeing recruiters emails for 160-200), but I feel like that's going to sound outrageous to them.

Hey there,

I got an offer but there was a discrepancy in graduation month, I noted May but it was actually December. Was asked to provide explanation so now I am waiting to hear back.

How serious is this type of discrepancy?

They also are unsuccessful in reaching my previous employer. Company was bought by one of the giants after I was gone so not sure how successful they will be in getting a hold of my record. That seems to be the last item in my background check.
