'Training' these days seems to consist mainly of copy and pasting from Stack Overflow.

'Programming' these days seems to consist mainly of writing the same code over and over again to implement slick-looking but poorly designed web sites that allow a crew of borderline sociopaths to induce the public to tell them all about themselves so they can accumulate big data and sell it all to huge corporations for obscene amounts of money.
Sad times!

Eheu fugaces anni labuntur, Postume, Postume,
The years slip away and are lost to me, lost to me.

Arise, you prisoners of Windows / Arise, you slaves of Redmond, Wash,
The day and hour soon are coming / When all the IT folks say "Gosh!"
It isn't from a clever lawsuit / That Windowsland will finally fall,
But thousands writing open source code / Like mice who nibble through a wall.
