Predict the future of programming

Let's play a little game, I'm going to try to predict the future of code,

I believe that that in 50 - 100 years:

  1. code will not be written solely by hand, most languages will be written closely with AI intertwined, like a linter or steroids, the experience will be sort of like pair programming with somebody much smarter who knows your intent by the direction your code is heading.

  2. Code will be self healing

  3. Quantum computers will be the size of smart phones and people won't think twice.

  4. No optical displays. From machine to brain, who needs screens.

  5. Programming will primarily be achieved through dancing. (Okay it's an art, but I took that to far) πŸ’ƒπŸ•Ί

Was I right? what do you think about the future of programming?

I especially like the defence of dance to interface, I almost wish dance code was a thing. πŸ˜‚

An Animated Guide to Node.js Event Loop

Node.js doesn’t stop from running other operations because of Libuv, a C++ library responsible for the event loop and asynchronously handling tasks such as network requests, DNS resolution, file system operations, data encryption, etc.

What happens under the hood when Node.js works on tasks such as database queries? We will explore it by following this piece of code step by step.
