I think code is actually a lot different than aluminum, wood, or leather.

You seem to be conflating raw materials with finished products. To continue on my overused buildings and architect analogy, what you’re basically saying is that architects shouldn’t need to understand wood because we mostly put sheet rock over the top of it. To say that designers of software shouldn’t be able to manipulate the materials their designs are made of, or some near facsimile because users will never interact with the underlying raw materials would break a lot of processes if you applied it to any other design discipline.

Like what you read? Give Tony Santos a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
