Try imagining these things happening for, say, doctors, civil engineers or something else that matters. I'm sure many are going to argue that we should prefer lower factor productivity.
Reducing barriers while still producing similar or good-enough output is the nature of all industries.
To take the doctor example, say you have the following available to you (price for a single visit):
$0 - Google
$50 - Cheap Walk-In Clinic
$250 - Regular Doctor Checkup/Visit
$1000 - Semi-good specialist
$9000 - Specialist
To go back to programming, take the same list
$0 - CMS/Drupal/Wordpress/Bighost
$1000 - Outsourced
$9000 - Local Consultant
