Actually, much of the thinking involved in mathematics and physics _transcends_ the kinds of thinking which programming experience can develop. Extensive knowledge of mathematics and physics definitely assists Mathematica programming, more so than in other languages because of the high-level functionality. The "physics" or "mathematics" way of thinking often assists implementations of algorithms in Mathematica. This is, I think, the key point of this thread.
