re: What are your impressions of your self-taught co-workers? VIEW POST


I have had a few self-taught engineers on my teams through out the past and I have found each of them to be very passionate in what they do. Anyone that has the ambition to teach themselves any level of programing has a thirst for knowledge for tech. imho. The only downside that I have ever seen is one particular self-taught engineer I worked with was always excited to use the latest greatest technologies before they were proven. This has left some tech debt for the team that we have to deal with at some point. Otherwise the engineer was very smart and knew what he was talking about.

I have no problem working with anyone that is self-taught and is good enough at it to work for the company. Let's face it, we wouldn't hire anyone that wasn't good at what they do.
