Frontend developer need to rethink their work?

If any of you are on Twitter and following the tech trends

I just built a functioning React app by describing what I wanted to GPT-3.

I'm still in awe.

someone built this using GPT-3 and its both amazing and freaking me out.

Even though I do both frontend and backend, it looks like all that'd be left for me to do with this getting better and better will be to just maybe change styles instead of coding the functionality.

What do you guys think?

I've been a (mostly) frontend developer for 8 years now, I've seen plenty of "this new tool will make you obsolete" and here I am pumping more CSS, JS and HTML than ever.

I believe that automation tools like that can make some boring tasks easier and faster, which is welcome.

One other pattern that I see in our industry is that for every new stuff that makes development easier, more room is created for new, initially complicated stuff that gives the creator some kind of competitive edge.
