To be quite honest & truthful and having been in the IT software industry for over 30 years, I have seen my share of companies come and go. The companies that endure are the companies that create customer relationships and provide service, quality, and keep the price reasonable to the market. Having expert and experienced software developers helps a company in their software and product lines, but it is not a guarantee that the company will never fold or go under. External factors like contractors, open source software, consolidation of companies, and employee turn over can make or break a company. I also co-majored in communications & marketing and am convinced the CEO of a company is paid a high salary for that one or two decisions they make guiding a company to success. Bottom line, don't believe everything you hear about a company, but when working for a company, keep developing your skills and don't worry so much about what is going on above you. Keep your resume updated, keep learning new skills that will help you advance in company promotions, but be prepared to at several times in your career to switch companies due to poor management decisions, economy swings, and possibly co-worker situations. Let your resume, work experience, and personal growth drive your career.

I think any platform, service, company, idea, product, or otherwise that has the threat of disruption needs to continue challenging themselves and evolving with time. If YouTube doesn't hire more developers, your assumption that it will die in 10 years is virtually cemented in stone. If they continue to hire new people and develop new talent that helps them stay relevant, then they can turn "Blockbuster into Netflix" instead of becoming a dinosaur.

when cloud computing, AI, Smart Data, virtualisation become a trend in ID industry and more and more company become interested in Devops, agile etc... This mean they not only need more developer but also they require more people have a better understanding of coding. So even you don't really like coding, it is better to learn at least one programming language to get an idea about coding.
