Is Programming Theory a Waste of Time?

Gave me a reminder of what PT was:  Its the theoretical introduction to coding,  and  not ONLY the specific, in context how-to of using a particular coding method. For hiring of course its usually seen that the specific practical skill is the most important.  Skill vs theory.  Mechanic vs Engineer. The rest of it is the theory and may add background and future flexibility.   You would also expect 'theory' to change more quickly as emergent tech does. Not a waste of time, as long as you still end up with the skill too.
