Programming

Edu Problem

There's never enough programmers, so the best managers and specialists know enough programming to get common requests done.  Even accessing data these days require a beginner level of programming, e.g. SQL.

We observe that the #1 obstacle of learning programming is fear.  It's the typical fear of looking stupid, but there's also the fear of overwhelming complexity.  Programming is often construed as a very difficult skill for "smart" people, and if you are not smart, people often believe that learning programming takes months of brain wracking work.
