    Someone excitedly demonstrated to me how easy it is to code with copilot. They generated a bunch of code easily. And then proceeded to debug subtle bugs for longer than it would have taken to write it yourself in the first place.

    And in the end they were still left with badly structured and maintainable code.

    LLMs will do exactly what Stackoverflow has done, but more efficiently: allow profileration of bad/outdated solutions to problems, and application of those with no real understanding.

    More garbage code and more work for the few people who continue to actually read manuals and understand what they are doing.
