So why don't we have more good programmers. Um. Probably because you have to think.
There's no room for mindless numbed down brainless lack of thinking. In fact, it's the exact opposite. Like doing mental gymnastics for 8 to 10 hours per day. Thinking. Minute details. Running into countless obstacles. Over and over. Hours of pouring concentration into a single task.
People don't like to think. They like to zone out on auto pilot. And Computer Programming, especially working with data, requires tremendous concentration, focus, problem solving, attention to details. In our society, that's hard to find.
And so it goes~!
