Tech jobs are already largely automated

Daniel Lemire effectively pops the bubble on Mark Cuban's assertion that software jobs will become increasingly automated leading to fewer jobs:
Will software write its own code? It does so all the time. The optimizing compilers and interpreters we rely upon generate code for us all the time. It is not trivial automatisation. Very few human beings would be capable of taking modern-day JavaScript and write efficient machine code to run it. I would certainly be incapable of doing such work in any reasonable manner.
