Wow your really making an ass out of yourself sir, you may want to denounce yourself as an author to this one. Look, I grew up programming, from middleschool through most of college- (ended up changing careers- however i still utilized some coding in the movie/commercial industry) Look. your paranoid about the market being overflooded, we allll can see and understand that. If someone is intelligent, and has ideas for a better future, much of the time Yes I could recommend it as a hobby to someone interested- or as secondary information for their work- their ability to tell someone who does it professionally what they want and have realistic expectations (this is the keeeeey reason i would recommend people learning to code) However its also good for anyone else who has the critical thinking problem solving patient mind that doesnt mind staring at the computer screen all day... if you can get past that, and be persistent, and choose a path that matches up with marketing trends, you can reset your whole career- and it would probably be a good thing. Its even one of those you can have a 1 hit wonder with, and create it in your spare time... its not a guarantee, but hey its a hobby with potential- biz people like potential. Personally, at this point in my life I may never program again. HOWEVER, i wouldnt take back one day of the 15+ yrs of coding I have done- nor would i take back one persons knowledge that i have taught them. AND its not my career, by any means now. So seriously sir, get your panties out of a bunch, stop being scared and realize, now more people will be able to better communicate their needs to you. and Chillax, sir.. you may wanna rethink learning some basic plumbing as well, maybe that should be YOUR hobby.. because guess what- its pretty nifty to not need to call a plumber at 4 in the morning.
you obviously attempted to choose writing as a hobby, because you rushed this one through, and didnt think.. maybe your just not a very good programmer? your missing some critical thinking, problem solving, application and communication here. you failed at trying to scare away people, go back to your dark cave.
your like one of those people that i would almost expect people to say "guns kill people because of the video games they play, because of the programmers who make them, programmers kill people" except of course, THAT even has more a more relevant transference of categories then you did. Maybe you just need some sleep. put the code down, and take a nap.
