Trades is looking for a master craftsman.

This sounds like much better advice. The demand is for great coders, and frankly for the vast bulk of people unless you have a real interest/inherent personality type you won't ever be a great coder, likely never even be a good one unless you're really into it.

I agree. It's super important not to force yourself to do something you don't actually like. My brother got a degree in Computer Science and he actually hates the work. He only did it because the money was good, and now he feels like it would take too long to go in any other direction.

I love coding, but it takes a certain mindset to want to do it.
