My opinion is a good foundation in mathematics is key is being succesful with computer programming languages, and having some computer science classes under your belt can't hurt. On the other hand though I do have friends that have learned Perl, Java, C++, and HTML with only a high school diploma. With the internet the way it is today alot more people are now teaching themselves programming skills and mathematics. In my opinion, based upon experience and connections, I would say that it all comes down to determination, and focus. Many tutorials are available on the net to learn almost any programming languages out there, whether it be SSL, AppleScript, PHP, or Fortran. So as long as you know some basic calculus that you get in high school you can get a good basic knowledge of how most programming languages work._____________________
