I strongly disagree. Programming IS hard if it is to be done well and if you give people the illusion they have mastered "programming" (probably with a "Learn XYZ in 24 hours" book) you'll end up with exactly the sort of bloated, buggy crap that today is called software. I've been a programmer since the 6502 came around end of the 70s and I hang my head in shame about the state of play in software.

This is the same trap as re-training all and sundry as cyber security experts. You'll see where that will land us.
