Is coding very difficult? Is javascript or python easy?

Someone told me you do not need a degree to be a software developer. This guy graduated with a CS degree. He said anyone can learn coding and you don't need math. So is python or javascript very difficult?
i have college level education but no technical background...
Update: I believe what he said about not needing a degree in order to do it or learn it. I know a young girl who has no college degree and is a software developer, she does coding.
Update 2: EddieJ, Why do you expect that I'd reveal her name to you?
