Why are there less inventors and more users in the programming industry?
Some relax and wait to use this or that CMS or framework and smile. They know nothing about the code development or structure. The day they witness a little bug, they're long dead before their dying day because they don't know where the code block to debug is or where to even start debugging from.
Coding culture is dying everyday. Look around and see many website adverts in our streets. 10,000 for a website. They just install scripts and change this or that CSS and there is a website. Ask them to make A behave like B or C like A and they will tell you that's not possible. The theme will not permit that. That becomes an issue between their client and they.
Post a little snippet for debugging and 98% of the acclaimed PROGRAMMERS will have slow Internet connection or become busy at the background waiting for the likes of @dhtml to come and proffer solutions. Aren't we just doing ourselves much harm?
I remember in Nairaland around the 2005/2006, we were all codes because we wanted something better. The challenges we faced made us learn better and we improved more. This trend suddenly died because we wanted things easier and with less stress. Writing codes became only for the sufferers. If they don't fix these bugs then the bugs become super heroes. Can't we become any better?
Here is Africoders.com. Are we going to use here to become African Coders or are we just going to continue being script installers?
