Becoming a professional programmer, without going to college?
I am currently a junior in college, however I have had multiple jobs programming since high school. Currently I work programming at a company part time using many different languages that I have learned the past few years.
I recently sat down with a advisor and discovered with the classes I have left to take, I will learn next to nothing in them, as I already know the concepts and how to apply them for all the classes.
My current job has offered me a full time position and I have had other companies email me as well.
My question is if I know for a fact that I cannot learn more at college, is there even a point in staying?
I know for a fact I could spend my time in more productive ways programming and working then what I am doing in school.
Do you think to be looked at seriously as a programmer you need a degree?
