The standard bell curve distribution holds for so many disciplines, including programming. The majority of people in IT-related fields are "intermediate:" coders banging out apps in a daily grind to make a living, most of whom didn't go to grad school.
Likewise, in health care, the majority of workers are not doctors, but nurses, technicians, and orderlies. The same goes for structural engineering: most workers are the laborers who physically put together the bridges/buildings/cars; very few actually design them.
Besides, there are separate StackExchange sites for CS Theory and for more "hardcore programming".
