re: Why I don't think a Degree is Necessary to Become A Developer. VIEW POST


Though I studied robotics for two years, I have no degree. For the last 10(ish) years, I've trained interns, lead teams that developed government and private applications, and have ran my own business on the side. It wasn't easy, but I did it. Sometimes I wish I did have a degree because I could have leapfrogged over a lot of garbage where I had to "prove" myself. What matters is that you can showcase what you know. So many times I didn't know how to express that I knew what I was doing. I didn't have a piece of paper to do that for me.
