I came across a wonderful blog post entitled “Whatever happened to programming”, with a second part here.

I think it tackles a very important question, specifically discussing how a lot of the work nowadays is spent putting libraries together and making them work, which doesn’t make the whole programming experience very fun and it also significantly affects “the flow”. The flow is something I would like to write about some more in the future, because it’s very important for me and I can’t seem to get it anymore in a lot of the work I do. I used to think it was just me, but now I’m starting to wonder if this isn’t perhaps a much bigger issue.
