Why are boomer programming jobs so hard to find now?

Why are boomer programming jobs so hard to find now? Things like assembly and low level c programming are almost nonexistent. Everyone said that as boomers retired these jobs would only become more in demand because zoomers aren't learning low level programming anymore, but it's just the opposite now. Those all became extremely competitive positions that you can only get through nepotism now. Why did IQfy lie to me?

    OP, you have to realize that money is fake and the economy is fake. C and ASM is maximumly useful in the REAL WORLD. But you're not asking about the real world, you're asking about the fake, corporate, literally manipulated by a small group of people world. Don't expect any of it to make any sense.

      This is true. Developing more important software tends to pay less than developing shitty goyscript website #98756782398462784. The learning curve is much steeper, you actually have to learn how to be a proper programmer, and the payoff is that the job is more secure once you learn the system. But you're going to make crumbs compared to the average SF soiguzzling gapejak working at faceberg or whatever the frick

    They don't need a million autistic people to maintain c. They need a million quirky people to prototype their ideas in Python, and then one small team to rewrite the few that are profitable in c.

    Your only solid chance is to contribute to open source projects that utilize such technology. After most if not all of the low-level code in the businesses that matter is built on top of open source software.

      Will contributing to open source lead to an actual job or am I just wasting my time and giving away all my hard work for free?

        Both kinda. If you have experience contributing low level code to open source projects you can make yourself more attractive to companies compared to a complete newbie that needs months if not years of education to become productive for the company. Still that's not guaranteed to work.

      >tfw i regularly use assembly and know low-level details to a ridiculous extent because i write malicious software but because it's not ~~*open source*~~ employers don't care
      their loss i guess

    The boomer code will run unchanged for decades to come. A lot off our infrastructure probably runs on code from the 80s with only very minor changes.
    People that told you to learn Fortran or C and shit, just tricked you into becoming a better developer. If you start with a real language instead of Javascript or whatever, it will improve the software industry overall because we then have more good developers.

          I live in a small town and there aren't any colleges near me. The only way I could possibly ever get a job is by applying online and then relocating to wherever the job is if I get hired.

            You are not that desperate then

            How are they job offers? Internships are specifically restricted to college students who haven't graduated yet.

    I feel like companies consider it a solved problem and something for just system creating organizations to care about: Microsoft, Apple, Nintendo, Sony, AMD, Intel, Nvidia and the volunteers in the Linux space. They have their own teams and they have no incentive to hire new people, they have become an expensive hidrance unless they're foreigners. Anyone making new software will deploy it in the cloud, and even then, is there anything new to make? If there is, it's probably in university research, not industry jobs.

    because market demand is always result of human needs that are 99.9%+ braindead cattle who cant notice that things look slow, ugly, unresponsive and too stupid to look how much cpu cycles/memory something uses so all the hardware progress in last 20-30 years went towards optimizing for profit efficiency instead of performance efficiency, why make something in C/ASM if u can make it 5 times faster in Electron? to a 60 Hz monitor laptop normie the performance and bloat hit is irrelevant since they cant notice it and if it takes 10 minutes they can just watch tiktok on phone.

    tldr: all software is designed with target audience of subhumans psychometric and hardware latency in mind that massively lowers quality/performance of it
