darkwind1262153dTraditional schooling with finishing university for at least standard diploma.
While relying essentially only on your own self learning, especially during university times
Ison115153dSkip 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.

I think the best think you can do is get good at teaching yourself
