For many years already I've been convinced that the future IT co-workers writing end-user applications will not spend 3+ years getting their degree in IT, Math, Physics or whatever subject they've decided to get, but instead, briefly schooled apprentices will take over this role.
First of all, this seems to me inevitable as there is too high demand for programmers while there is too little number of colleges.
Next, these future programmers will not have to "waste" their time on theory when they can learn the same from practice.
And finally, as present-day programming will be served by mass, the future programming will be more about tooling and serving the future programmers (thus not writing the end-user applications).

When watching this Bret Victor's video I realized that my conviction is finally coming true.
