Discussion on: As a self-taught, have you considered getting a degree afterwards?

It depends what you are after, really. The "degree" is a certificate within a system (and it's increasingly just an approval-stamp too rather than any reflection of knowledge/skills) - if you enjoy the system and you want to rise within it, gotta collect all papers on the way, too, so sure, go for it.

A bit like in ye olde communist states: can't make it past this or that unless you have your party membership, what.
