I think it depends on the program, and not necessarily just the degree. My CompSci degree included a pretty in depth focus on Bash, git, TCP/IP and actual practical skills. But, I've seen other schools that are way too theoretical. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Makes sense! Where did you get your degree if you don't mind me asking? It sounds like your school did it right!

Don't mind at all :) McGill University -- in Montreal. But I've definitely taken classes at other schools where there was no emphasis on actually coding as well -- which is...worrying :/ [Edit: Just realized you're IN Montreal! Awesome!]

Oh nice, I'm in Montreal too. I've heard good things about parts of McGill's compsci program.
