    i didn't know how to program for 2 decades. still learning.

    it certainly helps, but is not mandatory.

    It is a small percentage of the overall IT staff that writes code. The others have important roles of their own.

    Where I work, there’s only about 12 full-time IT people. And only a couple have good programming skills.  When we need programmers, most of that gets outsourced.

    As an IT person myself I can tell you that if you can't do basic scripting you are going to have a very hard time when it comes to managing a large network with a lot of desktop clients. You don't need mad programming skilz but basic knowledge of batch files and power shell are going to help you go far.

    I know very few IT people who program.  They are different skills.  It's like asking if a farmer who doesn't know how to cook is bad.
