People are scared to learn anything because they lack confidence and they are afraid of failure.

If you are afraid to fail then all you will ever do is fail.

I don't think the 3 quotes in the Original Post "prove" anything apart from 2 of the people in the world have a problem and another guy has a question.

And even if you did have some statistically reliable evidence of a problem I can't see any connection between your Title and your 10 points - which seem more like the sort of comment I would expect to hear on the silly BBC Radio2 Jeremy Vine "news" show.

Referring to the Tesla car death is just ridiculous. How many people were killed or maimed by "ordinary" cars on the same day?


Everyone has something that they are apprehensive about doing. I would not like to try singing, for example. But computer programming has always seemed simple and obvious.


I think the thing that many people have trouble with is the fact that computers are utterly stupid so it is incredibly easy to write a wrong program. And I do think some people are very poor (illogical) at debugging failed programs.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

To some extent, programming is (or is viewed as) a talent like being able to paint, write a novel or create music.  There are "poorly educated" people that are very good at it, and highly educated people that aren't very good at it (even PhDs in computer science...)  Trying something like that can be scary, especially if you've always been "smart" at other things.

None of your links mentioned Arduino.  To a significant extent, the Arduino experience specifically tries to get people past that fear, but being "easy" and avoiding some industry-standard but scary terms (like using "sketch" and "upload" instead of  "program"...)

You will find people with irrational fears of all sorts. Some people are even terrified of pictures of guns, for example.

Where'd the OP go?  One little criticism and these idiots go and delete everything.

I'm sure your avatar frightened the OP. I know breasts scare me! :o
What, I need to say something else too?

They should probably ban me for that.

Fixin' to.

'bout time we had some Law & Order 'round here!

Which one is Law?

You have an interesting definition for the word "short".  The ban is currently set to indefinite.  :)

(I'll change it in the morning.  If I remember.)

What is the common reason why some engineer scare of coding arduino?

These are educated guess.
1. Robots take over the world?
2. Monster, Demon or devil's code
3. Evil. Google motto "Don't be evil"
4. Arduino is different from C++, Ojective C. it's about machines
5. tesla electric car killed a driver.
6. humans don't trust the codes
7. human don't trust arduino chip
8. Arduino chip would explode if you code wrong.
9. Censorship or totalitarianism
10. Big Brother is watching
