You mean "doesn't involve" I think.
I can only think of all those people who didn't know they could program,
and who never in a million years thought they'd want to, back when
HyperCard came out. Suddenly everyone was a programmer, even the "morons."
And yes, most of their attempts were awful and the AOL forum was filled
with crap from little kids and inept adults, but...they were
programming. And some of those people got hooked and went on from there.
Like me. One of the best gifts my husband ever gave me was a pocket
protector as acknowledgement that I'd "arrived."
