Why LLMs are good at generating code

By comparison, see my old working paper, PowerPoint Assistant: Augmenting End-User Software through Natural Language Interaction (2013). Here's the abstract:

This document sketches a natural language interface for end user software, such as PowerPoint. Such programs are basically worlds that exist entirely within a computer. Thus the interface is dealing with a world constructed with a finite number of primitive elements. You hand-code a basic language capability into the system, then give it the ability to ‘learn’ from its interactions with the user, and you have your basic PPA.
