In spite of a perceived increase in accessibility to the means of coding, Meredydd Luff thinks there's a culture within code that's actually having the opposite effect. In the past, it was possible to stumble into programming sideways and still produce a useful artefact for an end user. Nowadays, there are so many pre-requisite languages, frameworks, and libraries that it actually prevents us from getting started and leaving some space in our brain to be creative.

To quote the software engineer Frederick P. Brooks, "The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination. Few media of creation are so flexible, so easy to polish and rework, so readily capable of realizing grand conceptual structures.”
