As a founder of SAAS or other tech startup, would you prefer to get basic knowledge of programming ? even if you going to hire developers . To me it's very time consuming and have little benefit since i wont be able to match years of experience that developer would bring on the table .
P.S: I have read some post about how developer take advantage of non tech founders and deceive them by exaggerating requirements and turnaround time. And you may end up becoming a prisoner without having your own say.
