re: What is the future of software development pay range? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Most companies are seeing the competitive market for what it is, and developers who can show they can do the job (and learn/adapt/have decent human interaction and communication) will continue to show the value in paying higher salaries.

That is, until a serious AI solution comes along that automates what we do. Maybe in the next 30 years AI will be able to write software in such a way that it's still human-readable, uses existing software without being told what or how, and looks and behaves as expected. Maybe not.

Or until the economy collapses but that's more of a global problem not just software developers.

That will never happen, no matter how much effort developers put into it. In the short history of software development every step we take in making our work easier results in more, new, and different work.
