It seems there are lot's of people here who think this post means that Jeff thinks that you shouldn't go out and learn how to code. I don't think that's the point of this post. The point to me is that if you choose to do that, you should also make sure you understand what you're doing. I have more than once seen the havok of code written by people who didn't understand and trust me, it can bring down entire companies. Read more about it in this post:

As a developer who also spends a lot of time helping out with deployment of software to different environments, I feel that in most cases developers should not have any access to production. If you can't do a proper deployment on your identical acceptance environment, you should not deploy at all. And if something goes really (involving in house code, which is extremely rare) wrong I want the sysadmin to be there and we should be looking at production together.
