Why not, people learn languages and there are programmers coming from
other language, switching languages, they know in one language
majority of things and not in the new language.

In general, there is nothing wrong in asking. It is better that we
give incentives here to ask any questions by anybody regardless if
programmers or not programmers.

If any person is configuring ~/.emacs or init.el then they are
becoming programmers it is progress and is good encouraging progress.

How many programming languages there are? I hope that definition of
programmer will not change through time that it requires multiple
programming languages or being paid for the work. Many children today
are programmers, I would not call them not programmer if they do not
know Java but they know how to instruct Lego robot.
