Should tester’s learn programming? And is it just for automation?

IMHO, every software engineer should be able to program, and it’s not just for automation,

Rather the ability to understand production code and how the control flow works across the tech stack.

Not everyone has to be a wiz at the whole architecture, but not completely clueless either –

IMHO the justification of: “I test just like the user, hence I have no need of knowing how the product technically works” is extremely wrong

Every software engineer should have the capability to look at code and make sense out of it.
