seriously, though, I'd love to take a math class to fill in some of this stuff but all the academic math classes are like "you need to retake calculus first because it's been too long" and, uh, that's a huge blocker.

Yes! L ooking at function signatures and reading others' code feels so similar to parsing Latin sentences!

liking this for the bookie bent on managing managers 🤣 And graphs scare me, but that may have to do more with oncall than anything else...

Agreed! My point is that math isn't the only path to acquiring those skills. It's a bit like saying math helps you be a better musician. It totally does! So does knowing how to dance. Skills are interconnected. Math is ~a~ lovely and satisfying way to hone computering skills.

Raise awareness and share this story! Mauritius is a tiny island off the coast of Africa. There are many Africans there who depend entirely on the sea. It is their entire life force. This is truly devastating news

that sounds really awesome! I’m sure seeing the logic done on numbers is more intuitive for a lot of people.

It’s one way to achieve the ability to approach a problem and break it down into steps. But it’s not the only, and I really appreciate the OT making this point. I’m wary of making math an absolute prerequisite. You might as well require Latin, or drumming.

Why do you ask? Genuinely curious. I'm sure I use math all the time, but I'm not sure it's math I have consciously learned anywhere, and it feels more like common sense than math. I certainly rarely use math formulas. I'm an infra engineer.

I have this but with anxiety ...three months into therapy that emotion assessment sheet suddenly looked a lot worse and my therapist went, "wtf" and I said "no it was always this bad I just didn't know" and she went "yeah that can happen"

The difference between "ditzy disaster" and "adorably dorky" is really just the quality of your coworkers and friends.
