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

Over my 20 years career as a software developer, which started before I completed an 800 course with no degree and not even a high school diploma, I can tell you that I've thought about getting a degree many, many times. However, unlike you, as far as I know, I would have to take all the courses - so it would be very time consuming for me, and I'm way too lazy to do it anyway.
Also, I've been working with many people over the years, a degree is not what makes you a good developer.

Having said that, if you can simply take a test, I say go for it.
