If you are going to program a computer you must know a programming language. If not, there is no benefit to you in learning one.

The obvious answer is nearly always the correct one.

Why learn to drive a motor vehicle if you never have an intention of driving one.

This time I do not agree with StuartS whose posts and opionions I usually higly appreciate.

In the today computer driven world to know the basics of programming logic studying a computer language may help you to better understand a lot of things even not related to IT. Your own behavior may get benefits.

Probably my opinion is strongly influnced by European culture where what matters is knowledge more than applied knowledge.

Having thought about, yes I can see the benefits as well as a better understanding of how computers work. The application of logic learnt in programming can have benefit in other areas as well.

After all, boolean logic was invented in 1837, long before computers where ever thought of.

I haven't spoken a word of Latin since 10th grade, but it's helped me better understand and use English in the years since. Perhaps what IVO was getting at was more of training yourself to think logically and with discipline, which is needed for working with computer languages.
