To be fair, it’s not the programmers saying this - it’s the shysters selling python boot camps to wannabe coders. Every other junior I meet here in China who wants to learn development will give ‘I want to learn python because it’s easy’ as their primary motivation. It’s so sad - where’s ‘because I want to build cool stuff’.
Moreover, the ‘it’s easy line’ is driving down salaries because business owners who commission projects are starting to hear the ‘it’s easy’ line and won’t pay for their software any more.
Exactly your first point, and that's the issue.
Tbh, I welcome those kinds of people, makes my life better.
When their stuff breaks and they can fix it, who are they going to call? Us ;)
