Discussion on: Can anyone become a developer?

This seems irrelevant to the discussion at hand.

This thread is specifically referring to someone that is interested in learning programming, not someone trying to pass a class they aren't interested in. I firmly believe that anyone that passionately wants to learn programming for any reason can become a competent developer.

Define "competent". The industry average is nearly complete failure. Yes, anyone can, but the fact of the matter is that few do. From my research on the topic, this is actually quite normal in many industries.
