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

I started going for my AAS 4 years ago when I was just getting into web development. I decided I liked it and college wasn’t teaching me what I wanted to learn fast enough, so I started supplementing my own learning. I started getting jobs, freelancing, and building side projects while teaching myself. I graduated last April although by my second year of college I had learned everything my degree had to teach. I finished my degree just to do it, but I would still consider myself a self-taught programmer.
