im always amused when I hear people say programming requires math skills. High school math skills. Not higher math skill, except for esoteric applications, which inevitably are just implementations of higher maths necessary for other fields.

This is simply false.

I have used, in my work:

1) Bayesian probability

2) Numerical integration

3) Linear algebra

4) Graph theory

5) Combinatorics

There are all beyond high school math.

Not higher math skill, except for esoteric applications, which inevitably are just implementations of higher maths necessary for other fields.

Dunning-Krueger strikes again.
