comment Should I enter an employment agreement before finishing school?
@yati sagade I imagined it was a common idiom where you live I just thought the question would be clear exchanging this idiom for another. Maybe I should have posted that just as a comment, keeping it outside of my question.

comment Planning to write research paper - Tips or resources?
@alecRN The pace for working with (principal) researchers is usually slow, since they are usually multitasking between their students, writing grants and cutting a lot of academic red tape. Most research papers have multiple co-authors. Maybe you could find a grad student of his wiling to help you out? He might have more time available.

comment Work experience instead of education?
Some kinds of visa require tertiary level education. You might look for the countries that doesn't and try to emigrate there. The other problem is that international hiring is expensive and risky. And taking a developer without tertiary education is often also seen as risky. This combination might skew the perceived benefits/risk factor against you. Can't you go to a local equivalent of a community college and get a degree? This will make way easier for you to emigrate.

comment How does one get a group of programmers together for a project?
@Dogmatixed You should plan as if you're going to go away anyway. A team must be always ready for a key member to leave. You might be abducted by ETs. Or just have a better proposal. Document both the code and the development process, and so on. dotancohen advice is good.
