we as programmers should be assembly line workers putting parts together. This means that we should be able to assemble anything anywhere.

Nope. Sorry. I can't regard "Programming" as assembly line work, though I sadly agree that in many companies that is the case.

That's proof to me that the concepts of WebComponents has never taken off. We use all of these super duper frameworks (for front-end) and few are creating reusable libraries. I've been in IT for a long time and this lack of reusable components is a common theme. It's programming as it was 20 years ago.

I think it was uncle Bob who said that every 5 years the developers number is multiplied. That means that every 5 years you get 50% of the developers with less than 5 years of experience. They are bound to repeat the mistakes done before.
