No, it states that it takes 10.000 hours to become an expert.

 

Becoming a pro doesn't take any time at all, nor is being a professional any indiciation of actual skill (It just means that you're doing something for a living). Many professionals are really quite bad at what they do. (This is especially true in fields with low competition),

 

Obviously being good at something makes it easier to become a professional but they are separate issues.

 

10.000 hours is a good amount of time to become very good at a very specific field of programming.
