Starting from scratch, any recommendations on traditional schooling or self teaching.

  • 2
    Traditional schooling with finishing university for at least standard diploma.

    While relying essentially only on your own self learning, especially during university times

    That’s actually makes a lot of sense, thanks brother ✌🏽

    Skip college - take courses on Udemy. Make sure you read course reviews and do your research on the instructors/courses. Start personal projects and begin immediately working on utilizing what you've learnt or are learning.

    I wouldn't call it "self teaching" in these cases, but the most efficient path from 0 to 100 is not college, but hard work and efficient learning. College is not really worth it in the IT field, but that's just my take - I attended a few semesters, but ended up quitting because it was not worth the time/money and I just learnt whatever was needed to do X type of development and found a job that way instead. I have no regrets.

    @Ison This exact reasoning is why I’m favoring the “self taught” approach especially because learning in the field works for me. Nice to hear someone with experience agree.

    really depends on what you consider education - if you just want to be market ready then yeah self thought way is enough. institutional education can provide networking, can provide deeper insight and can broaden your horizons.

    Well if you choose schooling just realise that you will need to be self learning for your own career, it’s never really done.
    I think the best think you can do is get good at teaching yourself
