I wrote an entry answering this question a while back:

Why Computers Haven't Replaced Programmers[^]

Two primary thoughts to take away from this question:
"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
Albert Einstein

In order for a computer to write computer programs, it will need to be at least as intelligent as the program that it is going to encode.

Finally, the AI will need someone to give it instructions for what kind of program should be written.

For this, I look at the law and how it is worded, interpreted, misinterpreted, abused and so on. Humans cannot agree on the same definitions and interpretations. We have the same issues with developing computer programs. Even then, to be able to develop a system that can write all of the programs that will ever be needed is also a monumental task.

There is a long way to go before the role of a programmer is eliminated entirely.
