In general, I agree with you. I'm a pretty good problem solver but I've never been a great coder. It hasn't hindered me in most projects. There were already a few comments along these lines, but I think sometimes people need to have a "Coding 101" course that introduces them to what's possible. Sometimes, people are so ignorant of code that they don't even know what to ask for. They end up "solving" problems with crazy, manual processes instead of simple, automated ones. (I expect that this issue will start to fade over the next 40 years as the "digital natives" get established in the workforce.) I guess I fall into a camp of teaching more people coding concepts, but not necessarily teaching them to be coders.
