I totally agree. This is pretty much the same blog post I wrote a few months ago (same title even) when Code Year was getting so much press. The feedback I got was the programming is going to be a blue collar job in the next 30 years. http://accidentalhacker.com/post/16116466587/please-dont-learn-to-code The percentage of the population that can engineer great software is so minuscule, and that number won’t change dramatically. HyperCard couldn’t change it; Visual Basic couldn’t change it; and no amount of instructional videos and interactive code challenges can change it. We might be able to nudge the number upward by making things easier, but there is a hard limit. At it's core, programming and the problems we solve as programmers is *hard* and the general population isn't very good at doing hard things. http://accidentalhacker.com/post/16116466587/please-dont-learn-to-code
