At least she admits at the end of the article that she is not a good coder. Maybe she should have led with that.
Most coding does not require a great deal of math knowledge, particularly if you're coding in a business environment.
Several years ago, when my ex-wife and I were still married, she decided that the prospects for jobs for English majors were too poor, so, she thought she would try her hand at web design. We went to the book store and together picked out a book on HTML -- a visual book, that was even simpler than one of those "For Dummies" volumes. She said she would begin using it the next morning.
The next day I went to work as usual. When I came home that evening, I found the book sitting in the trash bin. "What happened?" I asked. She said, "The first thing it told me to do was to open something called Notepad. I spend FOUR HOURS trying to find f**king Notepad on my computer! I couldn't find it, so I gave up!" I calmly walked up to her pc, clicked Start, Accessories, Notepad. "Here it is," I said. "I have no business doing web design," she responded.
So yeah, you can try to Google and copy and paste your way through coding, but you kind of need to know how a computer operates first. And then there's the whole problem of troubleshooting when things go wrong. It's like saying, "Hey, all you have to do to be a mechanic is watch Youtube videos on car repair." Well, you might get a clue how to change your oil, but you won't neccessarily have any idea what to do when your car is making a funny noise.
