I am a programmer, in fact, I develop websites all the time, yet I find myself clicking Adsense ads.
No group is immune from advertising.

I have some content that's popular with programmers, and I took the AdSense off all those pages after they earned only a tiny bit of revenue. Some of my articles would go a whole month with nary a click.
I think programmers are the most likely kind of people to use ad blocking software.

maybe amazon links with programming books would be better. I'll have to experiment I suppose.

I was very excited to sign up as an Amazon affiliate, as I often recommend technical books in my articles. But I found that I earn very little that way, typically less than $10 per month.
I'd be very interested to hear about an ad program that appeals to technical folk, as I have lots of popular technical articles that could be earning me money.

I have a site about programming as well, 6 years old...
before I paid real attention to adsense placement CTR was 1-1.5 %
One year ago I started to optimize and it is increased to 2-3%
removed from pages where much text, like online books, there ctr is very low, people just read page by page...
you need to use channels to see where ads work and where not... much work actually ...
