I can think of few reasons. 1) There is a heavy demand for Programmers. unlike other professions, every field right now needs Programmers. Supply can not match up with it. It is not easy to find good programmers, as they are mostly already taken up by big instutions. 2) Scope of programming is increasing exponentially. Most of the people are good in one technology and they just learn that without learning computer science and become programmers. My friends who studied Electrical Engieering, have done few c programs - thats it. They did not get job in their field. many of them did a crash course on MQ Series and landed on Job. they could know most of the MQ Series and they would think they are programmers but when you ask them simple algorithm questions or from Java or Perl they would blink. Only who have the bredth knowledge and can dive into depth can ammuse you. we have lot of silos.

one main reason i see, lot of people without computer science degree are into Programming. Well yes there are some very bright programmers who learnt the basics out of curiosity but most did not. if they had the ground work , then i think most prob'ly they won't be bad. we don't have Doctors who studied Physics, then why we have a chemical engineer doing programming ?
