I don’t think online learning and short courses or even bootcamps are the impetus for the requierment drop. I think the drop is more due to extremely intelligent, eager to learn individuals taking up computer science at younger and younger ages.
Some of these individuals certainly take advantage of bootcamps, some of them learn on their own, but a lot of them don’t feel the need to get an undergraduate degree. I don’t think that should hold them back from contributing and participating in software development.
I’m certain there’s high schoolers that could right cleaner, more performant code than me and I think that’s awesome.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
