Very true But then again, maybe it's because there's not enough general encouragement that programming is a tool for everyone, not just "computer wizards".

The fact is that utilizing basic if/then statements, for loops etc. to make small scripts isn't really hard, especially if names of variables etc. are written in plain language or close to it. In my experience (with no formal training in programming) it's easier than some areas of elementary school math.

Thankfully, newer generations are usually taught some kind of introductory programming in schools. I think that programming will eventually be somewhat like cooking: everyone will have some elementary skills in it.
