Let me share that this is far (I mean far) away from reality. Programming doesn’t give you the opportunity to have a job. This is a lie. There are lots of programmers looking for a job. There are tons of programmers in India, China, Vietnam, … working for cents. If you are older than 40 forget (absolutely) to enter in a company to program. Companies don’t want ‘old’ workforce. Even if they work harder, and sometimes better, than young ones. Find something scarce.
But I agree with the sentence from Jobs. It will give you a different perspective on how to think. But it isn’t the only way to learn to think. And not the best and only one. Diversity is a treasure.
I was programming for twenty years. I think I know what I am saying. Humble.
