Why Programming Might Just Stay a Hobby of Mine

Why Programming Might Just Stay a Hobby of Mine

I’m writing this right before I go into a non-programming job of mine, but really wanted to get this message out there. Programming is being dominated by pretentious & naive people who don’t have a genuine interest in learning or improving the field. If this isn’t already apparent through Big Tech companies like Facebook, Google, and Amazon (who really only hire graduates who hold degrees in something that is guaranteed to be obsolesced within 5 years or taught better on a sites like Stack Overflow or the API’s own, regularly updated documentation), then do I have news for you. The problem is Stack Overflow is full of these people, too. Check this video out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbDAmvUwo5c.

This is just a quick post. I’ll probably fix the English to better represent what I mean in the future, but for now, watch this video. Here’s another one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_ZK0t9-llo.
