It's both.

The engineering part of programming allows us to learn from our mistakes. Things we did back in the '90s in Perl turned out to be more trouble than they're worth. Similarly things done in the '00s. I'm sure we'll look back on stuff done in the '10s with the same disdain, but if we're learning and evaluating based on what we've learned, I think we have a reasonable chance to improve.
