You can take the word hobbyist as you please, it wasn't meant as a demeaning
term. And yes, there is crappy stuff produced by people who are "real"
programmers (whatever that means). And yes, both groups of people probably
never had a course in UI design or DB design - that's the whole point.
Writing the program is the final stage of a the process and without the
understanding of the things you mentioned, the result will likely not be
good, whether it's written by someone who is paid good money to be a
programmer or by someone who does it for fun.
