Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of maths involved in programming. I started an introductory course and dropped it when I found out how much was involved. My understanding of Maths is bad though, so you may want to check it out . There are some free courses here that might interest you and you could try without having to pay or invest too much time: https://www.coursera.org/category/cs-programming
I tried 'Learn to program the Fundamentals'
You need to be good at logical thinking and reasoning (which is essentially a large part of Maths) and some fundamental Mathematical concepts but you don't need Calculus as such, unless you're actually working on a Calculus related programming project.
But, obviously, being good at Calculus wouldn't hurt.
Calculus is not needed for general programming. Even trig is a stretch.
You do need a strong understanding of how variables work and a very strong understanding of logic and applied logic. Math and programming go together because the thought processes are similar. They are exact sciences. You'd probably be better off taking a time management course or other planning course than calc though.
Oh, and invest in a keyboard you won't make many mistakes on.
I get asked similar questions almost on a daily basis... The kids I tutor in Math (from HS Geometry through Calc II in college) always ask me questions along the lines of: What on earth am I going to need Calculus for in real life? My answer is almost always the same... Even if you don't ever use the stuff you learn today; you'll still need it so that you can graduate HS/College and get your degree.
So is calculus needed for programming? Not intrinsically, but if you plan on getting a Bachelors degree in computer programming; Calculus will be part of your core classes and without it you won't be able to graduate. So, in a way, you do need it.
