    Nope, just a can-do attitude and perseverance - there's no need secret. I would advise watching youtube video's and researching on google to get a basic understanding, then you might wish to invest in a course. Also, check out the forum here, lots of great stuff you can pick up free. Good luck

    when i was at school teachers were telling me "every programmer needs to know maths well".. well, i am already 15 years programming in several languages, and never needed anything more complicate than the regular + - / * %

    Hmm, interesting.
    I'm not sure if maths is a mandatory criteria, but I think logic thinking is rather important.

    In programming, there are cases of
    if (not (x not equal b) and ((b equal c) equal false)

    Being able to simplified or process the logic quickly if it's written by some other programmer is important.

    Is maths equals to logic processing, maybe, maybe not.

    Just my 2 cents.

    The best, cutting edge programmers usually have a strong mathematics background but frankly most programming work doesn't require any math but as others have already stated a good sense of logical thinking.
