It all depends on what your trying to achieve. If you want to become a doctor or a lawyer , then yes, you should have a degree of some sort. But other than that it is a huge waste of time and money .
I barely made it through highschool . The only reason why I have that diploma is because he had the skills and knowledge needed to run the printing and operating heavy machinery with Adobe Photoshop , Illustrator and PageMaker . ( Screw excel . Worst show EVER ! ) Long story short , the teachers gave me all the answers to the tests . playing field for the middle and end . All because I had the opportunity to work in a real environment and reach on time cards . It's all about experience . You do not need a $ 100,000 piece of paper to say they did something . Try a vocational school . Experience is the key to success . Not too expensive education. And knowing the right people helps. talk to people in the business of trying to get . Me for example . Press was running at the age of 15. monitoring a printing company 18. It was the design of pneumatic machinery 22. Im now working for a pharmaceutical company 3D PRINTING pills at the age of 24. So do not get dragged by all the hype about
So why not take the initiative and start coding on your own projects ? I also started out in IT, and that's what they all did ( I hated it because I wanted to be an animator ) , but I love coding websites . If you find something you want to do , try. Start making applications . Think of something you could use , but no . Someone else might be useful .
You may be able to go through college with cramming , but what will make you stand out more is practical experience . Go get him. There are many options for companies to choose from for anyone feeling the need to deliver to you .
