Are programming sites not getting AdSense approval?

I have a site with few articles. I intend to write more, but I looked around on the net and found out that programming and coding sites are not being accepted anymore. Is this true?

I was unable to confirm that programming sites were ineligible for Google Adsense from the searches that I did. Where did you discover the information that leads you to believe this? Please provide links by editing your question. – Stephen Ostermiller May 14 '13 at 10:20
You can read Google Adsense program policies. – Zistoloen May 14 '13 at 11:19

I'm IT student. When I'm doing my assignment I used google for codes and programming. I found many websites and in those websites I could view the Advertisements too. For example http://tutorialspoint.com/ in this website I saw the advertisement by adchoice. Look at this website http://www.cquestions.com/ there are full of ads at the starting. Google will approve adsense, only if there are more contents in your page and site ratings.

If your website is all about programming codes, then it might be a hard task getting an Adsense approval. Instead, if your website is all about various programming practices, tips, advices, or even a knowledge base, it shall get approved soon.

Read through the Adsense guidelines to get an idea.
