Tech is the future. There are still many who dont understand the impact. I would people in the banking, and O&G should worry more because disruption is coming. Distribution of money from the government can easily automated by technology and everything will be more transparent. The concept of having bank to give loan and distribute the capital is the old concept and it should easily be addressed in the future. O&G will be replaced by electrification. Many still dont understand this. Tech will be better for us and everything will be more efficient. Outsourcing has been there for many years, yet salary in Silicon Valley keep increasing. In Singapore, we are only started to catch up with SV, London, and China. I dont see the decrease in medium term and I am positive long term. Long term, AI will be the common theme and with low code movement, people can focus on building models and data analysis.

This is very true

Just look at civil engineering in the past, they encountered the same thing too

That is under the assumption that demand is still more than supply & your work cannot be outsourced to India.
wa buddy, the indian programmers are so good at what they do, and they are so much cheaper to engage. how to compare?

Just open your own clinic and write mc.
One day average 50 patients. At 30 dollars. You make 1500 a day.

Open everyday, that's 45000 per month.
Pay rent. Pay pharmacist..pay medicine . You take home around 20k per month

Life is about putting the LEAST effort to gain the MOST reward.

For those who are working hard coding and all these, you failed in life.

Must learn how to FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT!

Programming can't fake one.
Some people can fake it but fakers don't last very long.

I used to work with some faker with all the fake Microsoft cert he took online with leaked answer.
Ask him to restore database. He don't know.
Not only don't know... He don't know how to Google.

I used to ask him "I thought you have Microsoft sql sever certification?"

He say long time never use...

And yes he is foreign talent.. Burmese. Company terminate him after 3 months probation..
That's why now after working in tech for 10 years I distrust every programmer until they can produce a usable deliverable product. Until then, it's just bullshit.
