I haven't observed college to be all that effective at teaching CS. CS education is mostly acquired at the University of Google.com/search?q=%s

Question: exactly got how necessary is a degree anymore for programming positions?

    Depends on company and project complexity. For Web (especially front end) it's less about school and more about work and your Github commits.

    Your portfolio speaks volumes.

    @Vip3rDev as a game programmer, I'm basically taking my current project and making a portfolio out of it. It's only one thing, but it's been in the works for years. I envy artists who can make huge portfolios of their artwork, whereas I'm just like "here's the source to my last project"

    @antic Fair point, everyone has to start somewhere! In the beginning I would leverage any schooling you have while you build that portfolio.

    I get that game dev is its own development beast, so portfolio growth might be less than a web developer but, I would highlight any nifty things in your project or, areas where you encountered a challenge and your method to overcome it. That way you can show your code examples and how you work and problem solve.

    The companies ive talked to, they always say that more often than not having the degree gets you into the interview, but isn't the deciding factor upon whether or not you have the job.

    It always comes down to practical skill.

    Data Structures - the bane of all developers who want to work for a big "cool" company.

    Tell me about binary search Josh... Should I use it here... Is there a better alternative...

    Or some other stupid shit. I got asked some fucked up shit the other day. Turned out j needed to use Pythagoras... I haven't used that in years!

    So I just read what I said above, and it has no relevance to this question - I needed to rant somewhere and your question got the end of it 😂

    Stuff about CS education ahs been shared here for those who want to learn about it this time of the year as well. It can be used for https://www.edugeeksclub.com/ as it was also really good for us to learn it through this week. I am also in need of it this time.

    Academic studies are limited and the practical world is different. Students are taught basic in their college lives rather than the practical scenario of CS. For mastering in CS, a student must believe in self-learning.

    I know this, so I am very glad that I was able to find just a great company, you can look at it yourself and see the rating on top paper writing services, see for yourself. I think it will be useful, and it should be understood that here you can already study analytics and even live reviews for companies. So it is possible to make an objective picture of reality at once. Good luck.

    Totally agree with you. Any business requires an integrated approach.

    I think the college is teaching this effectively too. Moreover, many begin to study on their own and also achieve great results. I also think about taking similar courses and starting to study it on my own. But while I'm busy preparing the
    literature review and there is no time left for the course. And although this source helps me, https://www.litreview.net/ I'd like to finish one thing first before starting a new one.
