lungdart538124dYou get a spectrum of knowledge from taking a degree, but not for $50k.
Your 4 years are better spent doing the work. Sign up to brilliant if you want something more formal to round you off.
LLAMS3823124dMy degree was useful in the sense that it got me started. I had basically zero coding experience before I started and so had no real idea where to even start. Basically I didnt know what I didnt know.
Looking back on it, most of what I did after my first 2 java modules was almost useless. I got my first dev job when I was in year 3 of my degree and once I started learning there, everything in uni was just a super basic version of something I already knew dragged out over 12 weeks.
University courses need to be more condensed. They spend way too long re-hashing the same content. I learned how to code from scratch in 3 different classes. Each one assumed you know nothing and went back over the bare basics.
