The people on top? How about the software engineers themselves? As a software engineer myself I look forward to the day I'm forced to change careers due to obsolescence if my skills. I can't wait to see what people can achieve when anyone with an idea can make it happen with such ease.

Just in case, since I think I'm up against Poe's law here: I am, in fact, 100% serious.

I'm going to venture a guess that programming will be among the last jobs to be automated away. It's not clear that there will be a career to change into.
