I guess it depends on the requirements of the companies in your area. I know that in the UK where I am based you definitely don't need a degree for a career in the tech industry. Myself and many others are living proof of this.
It's only a matter of time before this becomes the standard opinion rather than the controversial ones and we will see only the companies that require a degree for an actual reason will be the ones that require them. Thanks for the input mate
