What would you do with “Average” Programmers?

We are always thinking about getting “rock star” programmers.

AlphaCode is by some measures an average programmer; probably a somewhat above average professional programmer but not a super-star.

DeepMind has a 73-page preprint available for those who would like to know the details. Reading it is probably not a good strategy for becoming an average programmer (smile).
