Discussion on: Can you become a successful software developer without a CS degree? My opinion

In don't want to re-ignite the fumes of this fire, but I feel that you're getting some important points through, although I also feel that much of this is now debated to the point where it simply isn't more to say.

All I wanted to convey (even though I get a bit carried away at times) is that a CS degree would give you, if nothing else, some really important math skills that would be pretty hard to acquire if not forced upon you, unless you have a special aptitude for learning advanced math concepts on your spare time, in addition to all the other stuff you need to learn if you're going to pursue a more "data science" related position, as this math is absolutely required in that area of work.
