Complexity for it's own sake?

When build pipelines are almost as complex as the code being built you have to wonder if it's for developers benefit or for the bank balance of the companies flogging these systems. Building software from a high level perspective is a relatively simple solved problem, it should become easier as the years go by, not evolve into some byzantine nightmare that only trained high priests can comprehend.

Or maybe I should just say get off my lawn.
