re: How important are math skills for software development? VIEW POST


I’m not a mathematician, I’m a maths enthusiast. So I like it when I can use maths, and wildly delighted when it's also maths I can understand. I work in visual effects so that will take all the maths you care to throw at it. But I also write a lot of unglamorous tools that don't require any math.

But there's always the related element of problem solving. I think maths is certainly good practice in that regard. I like the challenge and the rigor. It's like a gym membership for my brain.
