Discussion on: The New Way of the Developer?

In my opinion it's not really important for the career how somebody got into becoming a developer; university, bootcamp, autodidact, traineeship and all the other ways.
It's important for the first, maybe second job of your career, after that your expirience is way more important, at least in my view and experience.
That said I still think it's highly valuable for a team to have developers with different (professional) backgrounds.

I also think that your role models, mentors, or your coaches are the most important influence in your dev career. It doesn't matter where you are coming from or with what background; you will adapt or imitate your biggest influences' behavior and actions.
