I disagree. The sad fact is there are people who are missing out on the opportunity to code because of the environment as-a-whole.

Taking away superficiality, if a person has the qualifications and the personality, what's holding them back?

 

Nothing is holding them back. :-) But I think we should stop assuming that everyone should be a developer.

Prejudiced mindsets can easily discourage fledgling engineers.
