Was Steve Jobs a programmer?

Just wondering if he knew how to program.

He may have (probably not) but AFAIK, he never actually worked on the programming aspect.

Jobs was a design guy and Woz did most of the down and dirty stuff. Bill Gates was a programmer for sure.

He had some programming ability but very limited.

I can't imagine Jobs ever sitting down and taking the time to learn tbh.
