I always like the analogy of the NASCAR driver and the crew-chief. At the bare minimum, as a driver you should at least know the basics of what’s going on under the hood. The more you know about the ins-and-outs of coding, the better prepared you are to understand what needs to be done when it comes to designing a website or a system.
That and you won’t be taken for a ride when some slick multi-billion dollar firm wants to sell you a crap system that’ll be overbudget and underwhelming.
