Discussion on: Did my Computer Science degree help me?

I think if I tried to self-learn programming at 18 I would have had no idea where to start and may have given up before I even began. So I think the main benefit of a university degree for me was letting other people tell me what I needed to learn (also I got a couple of internships thanks to my uni!).

And there are so many seminars that you can attend. Sometimes people from the field guide you through these seminars and you get an insight of what is happening in the tech-world concurrently, what technologies are emerging and what your priorities should be.
