comment Have programmers at your work not taken up or been averse to an offer of a second monitor?
"I hated having the crease between the two monitors" = three monitors are better. With front, left and right it's sort of like driving a car with main windshield, left and right door windows.

comment What to do about “stopping point syndrome”?

comment 5 years of university education vs. 5 years of work experience - Which would you pick if hiring?
To complicate things, there are also people with degrees in other areas - they might as well not have a degrees so far as computer science or software engineering goes, but do have advanced thinking and problem solving skills, and may have practical work experience in software.
