The Future of Programming

A very interesting presentation: by Bret Victor presented at Dropbox’s DBX conference on July 9, 2013.

My first feeling after I’ve seen it was really sad. Did we, programmers, really lost last 40 years ?

My second thought was slightly more optimistic. Maybe we didn’t lost those years at all ? Maybe we used it to learn limitation of “conservative” apprach. Maybe we used it to develop techniques and technologies to make all those “forgoten” principles economically cost effective ?

And most important conclusion – Never think that you really “know what you are doing” and never stop looking for other solutions.
