None in particular beyond reading and writing.
As with any programming you'll have to get used to stop and think carefully *about* your problems and solutions, to understand what you're trying to solve and what exactly your solution consist of, but that is not tied to any particular area of knowledge, just a way of thinking that can be applied everywhere.

i do not have a background in computer science, but, a lot of digging
has led me to believe that i *should* know discrete mathematics and
machine organization, do correct me if i'm wrong.

Not necessary to start. You'll probably learn about these issues on the way: when that knowledge becomes useful you'll acquire it, and what you already know will help make sense of it.

Just find a problem or application that motivates you, and start from there.



Good luck,
