programming since y2k...

Half funny, half serious: How is computer programming different today than 20 years ago?  I disagree with some bits like

It's relevant; just not coherent. I think "desktop will be around 800-1000px across" will be with us for a long time.

The one that also stuck out to me:
Unit testing has emerged as a hype and like every useful thing, its benefits were overestimated and it has inevitably turned into a religion.
