I disagree. There are a lot of tools that enable you to code interesting things with very little effort. In fact, because things are so advanced, it is now much easier for people to find interest in programming. "Back in the day" the programs light up a few leds or made a few blocks move. It wasn't impressive. Nowadays, you look at any state-of-art computer game and it's impressive. If you have the drive to understand how things work, you will very likely become interested in computers. I know many developers who came to this industry because of computer games.
