My fellow programmers, despite your 10+ years of experience, your reactions are almost childish when you fail to recognize that the world around you is evolving. It may be scary, but this frustration you are experiencing is a side-effect to all that cool stuff that we developed to make our lives easier. We refused to write the same code twice, we complained about the tools, created new frameworks, controls, plugins, intellisense, code snippets so that we would never ever have to deal with those crappy pointers again. So don't be shocked if this drag-and-drop programmers never needed to write any code to make a dumb form. Blame it on Microsoft, whatever. But think about it. What was the last time you had to implement a linked list? Do you want this change to stop? Would you really want to be back to writing assembly language, or are you ready to live with the side-effects of making programming easier? Now... worrying that they will steal your jobs?! You, as competent programmers should instead feel confident, that while those non-programmers will be doing the easy copy+paste work, you have the chance to worry about real, hard problems to solve.
