Charles Petzold, the author of all Programming Windows editions, wrote a rather long but very good article on the state of software development with tools like Visual Studio. Does Visual Studio Rot the Mind? he asks, and while reading his article, I wonder how large software projects could be carried out without such development environments. Nevertheless, he points out that a strong knowledge of design principles, understanding of the interface of the libs you're coding against and a good design/coding style is crucial to writing applications. Main takeaway: Do not blindly trust designers and drill into the code they generate.
