zemaitis3769185dBut..but... Bill said that anyone can learn how to code! And I got good grades in my coding bootcamp where I copypasted 99percent of my code from internet, without even reading any of material, thus Im smart!
null-pointer-ex149185dFor real though. I had to work on an important software project that required a good understanding of digital electronics and I was so glad I studied computer science. I would have been screwed if I had went to those "coding" boot camps instead. Good thing they aren't even many of them where I'm from. My experience is that you don't have to be a mathematical genius, you just have to understand the basics and not be a code monkey that shits itself when asked to put a binary number is 2's compliment.

I've met enough developers who couldn't understand anything outside their personal sphere of knowledge
I've met enough developers who thought stuff a computer did was PFM and they just asked it what to do.
Being ignorant doesn't make one not want to be a developer.
Nowadays, there are so many 1 trick (and a few 0 trick) ponies around.
