I’m almost 48 — Marco and Ed are most likely much younger — and as a former1 web developer I’m already living into my own dystopian future. I haven’t a clue about Ruby on Rails or Scala. I dislike the formatting cage of Python and I barely know (or used) Objective C and Java. I absolutely hate C.
Then I’m going to learn how to break code.
Because the application layer is where the black hackers and criminals have gone. The future will be filled with (more) data piracy and breaches, and cyber attacks. So I’m learning how to break the code and start a new future.
I still call myself a web developer but the technologies have rapidly outpaced my motivation. But I have a plan.

- I still code. I just don’t get paid to do it. ↩
