I’ve tried my hand a programming, basically, I lack the patience. BUT, learning to be a programming to actually write code, and learning the basics, so you can actually read what’s being done (some of it at least) is pretty important.
Not real “programming” but there is plenty of “code” that if you know how it works, can help. HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL, Macro Development — nothing wrong with understanding how it all works.
Just like any language, there will be those that want to get by and those that want to master it. I’m closer to the getting by end, but can read through the lines and get a feel for what’s going on.
