Hi Folks,

Greetings.

I read that in near future, Automation will replace many developer's job   . As a developer in Java how can we improve our self to manage this situation from now on.  What are all we should know on Automation ? I think techies who are well known to Automation can give their Suggestion/Guidelines will be appreciated. Warm welcome to all comments.  

Thanks In Advance for your great time and effort.



Love & Peace & Thanks,

First, an heartly welcome to the Ranch !
What exactly do you mean with Automation ? IoT or something else ?
Automation is an already well established discipline in IT  - automation was one of a possible address in Computer Engineering Degree course when I was a student, and it doesn't seem to have had a negative impact on programmers' job...

Thanks. Consider myself novice to automation or automation tools. Automation tool which does the work of programmers like Automation Anywhere or something. What is IoT ?

I consider IoT (Internet of Things) to be nearly any device which uses the Internet.
You can have devices with sensors on them to the monitor temperature of a transportation container and if the temperature is too hot or too cold then an email/sms message is sent to a smart phone.
Shipping companies use IoT for tracking packages. When a package arrives at a sorting location and it's scanned in people can use the Internet to see where it is.
Those are only two examples of what IoT currently does.

It's thanks to IoT and automation that there is the Big Data market.
Java is used in Big Data along with many other tools/systems like Hadoop.

Oh IoT(Internet of Things). Thanks to you and IoT.

In my current work place many developers are given training in Automation Anywhere. So, I'm thinking how can we utilise our java skills along the side of Automation. So, do you think Big Data is also somehow related to automation. Please correct if I'm wrong or is my question is not clearly framed.

I think that as we move towards to more automated society the automated tools will use the IoT more to send data to Big Data systems.
That being said, automation and Big Data are still growing, from what I can tell.

So then the question may be narrowed down a bit to something like:
  • How will automation in the Auto sector change the role/duties of the programmer?
  • What economic sector will be most impacted by automation and how do you think that will affect the programmer?

  • I'm unsure if there is an easy/quick answer for any of these questions.

    Edit: grammar mistake fixed.

    Yes Pete Letkeman. This helped me in framing the question to ask in specific and right way.

    If the answer to this question Yes, then I wish to ask how a Java programmer can prepare himself Or learn to apply knowledge with automation.

    Thanks.

    In my humble opinion, automation would be a potential treat for workmens' job place, not for people involved in information technology. The more an industry invests in automation, the more is the need for someone able to manage the complexity automation brings in production processes,and usually the answer to this increase of complexity is investing more in IT stuff.
    From a Java developer perspective, I would not be able to say if  automation is relevant or not. I don't have much experience in industrial automation, but usually I've seen other technologies than Java involved in the core of automation -  expecially C++ or C, and a lot of Stored Procedures on databases.

    Is that going to be harmful to those who do menial jobs? In the days of heavy industry round here, there were lots of menial jobs, carrying things around, sweeping floors, which might not have paid well, but paid enough for somebody to support a family and a basic home. Now that sort of person cannot find such jobs and can see little purpose in his working.
    And when I said “his”, I meant “his”.

    Campbell Ritchie Thanks. Please help to understand what do you try to help from above. I'm talking about Java Programmers and Automation ? Correct me If my understanding is not on track.

    I wasn't referring to programmers's jobs.
