Keep getting calls from friends that their jobs are at stake because of Automation & AI. In fact a close buddy of mine called me two days back telling his job is at stake.
He said his company has moved out of Peoplesoft and unfortunately his expertise was into it. He said his competency was on the tool and he has lost his touch on coding. His purpose of call was to understand the technology trends and how he has to learn/practice coding.
For a long time Swami & me keep insisting folks who needs an IT career to code. People who get laid off are people who are;
- Project Managers
- People Managers
- Account Managers
- Manual Software Testers
- Customer Support Executives
To my knowledge not a single person who is a coder got laid off!!!
