Really good read! I agree with your stance on college, as a self-taught dev i'm super happy i avoided college simply because i avoided the debt. I do envy some of my co-workers CS backgrounds though because it just gives them such an advantage when it comes to understanding things at a low-level and also with System Design and things like that.

I've faced a lot of these realities and realizations myself as well, so hearing about your experiences lets me know these are common things that happens.

Keep up the good work!

Hey Marke’l, I’m glad you relate to that and found this helpful. I believe being self taught also has it’s own advantages too because you pick what you want to learn without anybody pushing it down your neck and making you write tests for it. Thanks for reading and the awesome feedback. ❤️💻👨🏽‍💻👨🏽‍💻🚀
