I would argue that it makes you a much better project coordinator to know how to build software. You're not risking much by learning these skills. You can always go back, but you may not want to!
Going back and forth from writing code / being an individual contributor and running projects is a great way to stay fresh, and building something with your mind / "hands" gives me great satisfaction. Good luck in your journey.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
