I haven't even read "Please don't learn to code" but I agree with the sentiment one hundred percent. All the things that could be learned by coding can be learned by studying math, physics, poker, go or pretty much anything else that engages the rational mind. It's only when one needs code that one should learn to code and if one can learn the previously mentioned things than learning to code should be no problem at all. This reminds me of when my linear algebra teacher told the class that we were going to skip UL factorization because one never needs it and if one does need it and can't learn it from reading the book then one is screwed anyways. Learning is for donkeys unless you need it. Learning how to learn is where it's at.
