This question is geared more towards people that have been doing IT "for a long time":
Do you find that, as technologies abstract and simplify things, that said "simplification" negatively impacts your ability to adopt?
Because I've been working in IT since long before GUIs (among other things) became common, it feels like whenever someone tells me "try this IDE" or "try this (simple) language/framework", etc., my brain trips over that simplification. It's like it's incomprehensible that I don't have to write all sorts of plumbing to get a task done - that I can just include/import/etc. a library or module and then write one further line of actual code rather than dozens.
