Um... not my 4-year degree. Since not all tech writers end up
documenting software, it seems a big fat waste of time to require them
all to take a programming class. Unless you're also requiring them all
to take a chemical engineering class, a medical terminology class, an
instructional development class, a forestry class, a government policy
class, a web design class...

who took a programming class as an elective and found it interesting and
useful, but still wonders why people think we all document software
